District One Hospital Board Approves Allina Health Affiliation

The board of District One Hospital in Faribault, Minn., has voted unanimously to approve an affiliation agreement with Allina Health, headquartered in Minneapolis, according to a Faribault Daily News report.

The District One Hospital Board introduced the proposed affiliation agreement last week. Under the agreement, the contract and bargaining unit current employees are under will end Dec. 31, according to the report. District One and Allina have stated employees who are offered new positions under the affiliation will begin their new employment Jan. 1.

District One Hospital nurses expressed concern at the board meeting where the vote took place on the agreement. The Minnesota Nurses Association had previously told the News District One employees feel betrayed by the affiliation deal. MNA Labor Relations Specialist Beverly Hall said hospital employees were not notified that they would have to start all over with their contract or that not everyone would be offered a job. MNA Communications Specialist Barbara Brady said the nurses would like to be able to negotiate new contracts, according to the News.

Allina and the hospital released a joint statement saying Allina "welcomes the opportunity to work with our local nurses and will honor any requirements to bargain with MNA and the unions representing other employees," according to the report.
