The union representing 4,000 Allina Health workers reports a deal has been reached to avoid a strike that was set for Monday.

The union states the tentative agreement includes a 5% pay increase over the next three years and workplace safety improvements.

A full membership vote is expected to happen in the coming weeks.

Allina provided the following statement Thursday afternoon:

"Allina Health is pleased to have reached a tentative settlement with SEIU Healthcare Minnesota. We believe that the contract is fair and recognizes the priorities of both parties. The settlement, which the union is recommending, is subject to ratification by the union membership. Allina Health remains committed to being both an employer of choice and to our caring mission of serving our patients and communities."
