After multiple days of voting, food service workers outsourced last year in a controversial decision by Mayo Clinic voted overwhelmingly to approve a new contract with Morrison.
The bargaining team of food service workers from Mayo sites across Southern Minnesota started negotiating with their new employer Morrison in March and wrapped up last week. The workers are represented by SEIU Healthcare Minnesota.
“The contract achieved the goals food service workers had going in to bargaining around protecting worker standards, namely winning union insurance, a union retirement plan and preserving and advancing wage rates,” the workers said in a statement.
