Service workers at Mayo Clinic Albert Lea have voted to authorize a one-day strike if, they say, Mayo "continues to refuse to bargain in good faith."

The group, made up of members of SEIU Healthcare Minnesota, includes 79 workers employed as certified nursing assistants, housekeepers, and those tasked with sterile processing in utilities and materials management.
