KSTP has a piece on news that the Minnesota Nurses Association leadership says the organization has filed an intent to strike, a move that could affect 16 hospitals across Minnesota and encompass 15,000 nurses.

Sydney Mook of the Grand Forks Herald reports that the remains of dozens of Indigenous people and sacred objects have been found on the University of North Dakota campus. “While the total is not yet known, around 200 boxes of sacred objects have been located and the remains of around 70 ancestors have also been located so far.”

Bloomberg is reporting that 3M is planning to eliminate jobs in response to the economy’s slowdown. The scope of the layoffs are, as yet, unclear.
