Minnesota Nurses Association members joined CTUL members for our First Annual Fundraiser Banquet.  MNA recently won an inspiring victory for over 12,000 nurses in the metro area after organizing the largest nurses’ strike in U.S. history (Picture on the right: CTUL members on the nurses’ picket line).
