Mayo Clinic Health System nurses in Mankato have union decertification vote scheduled
Nurses at Mayo Clinic, Mankato, seeking to decertify their membership with the Minnesota Nurses Association, have a date set for their vote later this month
MANKATO — A date has been set for nurses at Mayo Clinic Health Systems-Mankato to vote for or against desertification of their union membership with the Minnesota Nurses Association.
The vote will take place on July 25, 2022, at Mayo Clinic Health Systems-Mankato hospital with two time blocks available for nurses to vote. Voting will occur from 6-9 a.m. and from 2-8 p.m.
A petition was signed by 200 nurses at Mayo Clinic Health System last month, led by registered nurse Brittany Burgess, seeking to end their union membership with the MNA due to monopolization bargaining powers held by the union and Mayo Clinic.
The staff-led effort to decertify themselves from the union would be the first Mayo Clinic location in the state to break away from the MNA.
