Rochester General Hospital Nurses To Go On Strike Oct. 23rd

Written by on October 12, 2023

Members of the Rochester Union of Nurses and Allied Professionals (RUNAP) voted overwhelmingly to go on the second strike of this year. Polls closed with 91% of nurses in favor of going on a five-day strike, which will be longer than the first. Nurses voted to go on strike after the union and hospital leaders failed to negotiate a contract on wages, staffing, benefits, and other work conditions. The two sides have met during 23 collective bargaining sessions since last October, all ending without a contract. RGH released this statement before the results of the vote were in: “We are disappointed the union is threatening another strike when we’re still actively negotiating and working hard to reach a deal.”
