A TEAMSTERS UNION SEMI-TRUCK PULLED INTO FAIRMONT ON MONDAY. THEY PARKED THE RIG IN FRONT OF THE MAYO CLINIC HEALTH SYSTEM IN FAIRMONT TO SUPPORT SOME UNION MEMBERS AT THE HOSPITAL AND ESPCIALLY THOSE AT THE LUTZ WING NURSING HOME AT THAT LOCATION SCHEDULED FOR CLOSURE THIS FALL.

Teamsters Local 120 has delivered petitions signed by employees andcommunity members asking Mayo to commit that a new service will be added or expanded as a result of the Lutz Wing closure.

According to the union that commiitment has not been met

Teamsters claim In bargaining they have requested that employees affected by the closure be
given preference for hiring into open positions within the Mayo System and Mayo has not made that committment.

Mayo Clinic Health System's response that they are currently in effects bargaining with Lutz Wing employees being represented by the Teamsters and respect the right of the employees to peacefully express their position, even as we continue to be optimistic that we will reach a fair conclusion related to the effects of this transition.


Staff members who are impacted by the planned Lutz Wing closure have the opportunity to apply for other roles at Mayo Clinic Health System. In addition, Mayo Clinic Health System has been collaborating with area skilled nursing colleagues to help identify job openings at their facilities.

Our top priority for Lutz Wing is ensuring smooth transitions for residents and supporting their needs. A formal announcement about which growing service line will expand into the Lutz Wing space will be shared in the coming months. Oncology and Infusion Therapy is considered a possible fit for the space.
