2022 was a big year for Minnesota worker strikes
Major strikes by Twin Cities nurses and teachers ranked among the biggest labor-related work stoppages in the nation in 2022.
The big picture: The number of large worker strikes in the U.S. rose to its second-highest level in two decades last year, Axios' Emily Peck writes based on a government report released last week.
Zoom in: The Minnesota nurses' strike, which lasted three days in September and involved some 15,000 workers, was the second-largest in the country last year.
- The three-week walkout by 5,000 Minneapolis Public School teachers last March was tied for fifth.
In both cases, unions representing the workers ultimately reached contract agreements with the employers.
