MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The union representing about 4,800 nurses at five Allina hospitals in the Twin Cities area has notified the company it will begin a strike on Labor Day.

The Minnesota Nurses Association is required to give 10 days of notice to Allina so it can make arrangements to maintain patient care.

The Star Tribune ( ) reports the walkout is to begin at 7 a.m. Sept. 5. It's the second by Allina nurses since talks began in February over a new three-year contract.

The nurses say the strike will be open-ended, meaning it will continue until a deal is reached. Allina wants to transition its nurses to the same health insurance plan as its other employees to save $10 million a year. The nurses want to keep their current health plans with lower deductibles.
