Essentia Health Receives Notice of Informational Picket

Essentia Health has received notice that members of the United Steelworkers Local 9460 plan to hold an informational picket outside our downtown Duluth facilities on Monday, June 1.

The informational picket is expected to occur along East 3rd Street between North 4th Avenue East and North 5th Avenue East, as well as along East 2nd Street between North 4th Avenue East and North 5th Avenue East.

It’s important to note that this is not a strike and our facilities will be open as usual, providing quality care to our patients. We have measures in place to ensure that our patients and staff will have access to our facilities during the picketing. We respect our colleagues’ right to free speech and the union’s right to engage in informational picketing.
