HealthPartners Contracts with SEIU Healthcare Minnesota Expires with No Agreement on New Contracts
Date:2/1/2008

BLOOMINGTON, Minn., Feb. 1 -- HealthPartners contracts with SEIU Healthcare Minnesota, which represents 1,500 non-physician health care professionals who work in HealthPartners Clinics, expired yesterday at 11:59 p.m. with no agreement on new contracts.

HealthPartners offer to SEIU included:

-- A 3%-3%-3% across the board increase in each year of the contract.

-- Maintaining fully-paid individual health care coverage without co-pays, and family coverage at current cost-sharing levels.

-- Step increases, longevity pay, vacation and sick leave would remain unchanged.

-- Retirees age 55-65 would continue to have the option to purchase health care coverage at the group rate, which is significantly less expensive than buying health care individually.

-- HealthPartners would agree to establish and fund a labor/management education training fund.

HealthPartners remains committed to working with SEIU to reach an agreement that is fair and reasonable.

Unless we reach an agreement, we expect a two-day strike to occur on Feb. 13 and 14. HealthPartners is preparing for operations during a potential strike.
