Rochester General Hospital (RGH) and the Rochester Union of Nurses & Allied Professionals (RUNAP) met today for our tenth bargaining session since negotiations began in October of last year. The session began shortly after 10 AM and ended at approximately 12:30 PM.

Today, RUNAP presented a slide show to provide reasoning for its current wage proposal, and the parties spent time discussing the information presented by the union. RUNAP indicated it is holding to its first wage proposal even though RGH has already offered two counterproposals with increases in wages at the last two negotiation sessions.


During the Session, the Parties Discussed the Following Proposals and Counterproposals from RGH: 


Unfortunately, RUNAP rejected each of RGH’s proposal and counterproposals, and did not present any new proposals or counterproposals today.

RGH and RUNAP have agreed to work together to schedule the next meeting for bargaining.   We will issue another update following that session to keep you informed.
