Local 9460 continues fighting back against layoffs

Members of Local 9460 at Essentia Health in Minnesota have been facing layoffs in the wake of the coronavirus, but they’re still pressing on in their campaign for justice. New, large billboards now dot the landscape of northeastern Minnesota in support of the workers, which were erected after a caravan picket through downtown Duluth on June 1.

"Our goal is to get their attention," said Local 9460 President Deanna Hughes. “Essentia has received more than $80 million from the government to deal with the pandemic, and there’s no excuse for them to be cutting workers during this crisis.”
