DEER RIVER, MN - After threatening to walk off the job, staff at Essentia Health-Deer River have reached a tentative agreement with their employer.

An Essentia spokesperson says the agreement was reached Monday night with union representatives, and puts a halt to the work stoppage that was planned for later this week.

The new contract covers many positions within the Essentia Health-Deer River hospital and nursing home.

The Essentia spokesperson also adds a ratification vote, conducted by the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), will take place at a later date.
