Rochester Regional Health and nurse’s union expected to negotiate
ROCHESTER, N.Y. — There was still no agreement on Monday between Rochester Regional Health and the union that represents nurses at Rochester General Hospital.
Nurses went on strike from Thursday morning to Saturday morning after months on unsuccessful negotiations on a contract. The two went back to the negotiating table after the strike.
Representatives from the union, called RUNAP (Rochester Union of Nurses and Allied Professionals), said they want a contract with a wage increase over the next five years. They also want a higher patient to staff ratio at the hospital.
Rochester Regional Health says it is anxious to resolve the issues and come to an agreement on a new contract.
