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.
