The members of the Rochester Union of Nurses and Allied Professionals (RUNAP) are prepared for further discussions, hoping to demonstrate their serious intent.

Among key negotiation points is a pay raise for RGH nurses, with Rochester Regional Health arguing that the proposed increase would place RGH nurses among the highest earners nationwide – a claim disputed by the union.

Asserting that the union proposed “fair market wages,” union members indicated that competitive pay was essential in retaining nurses who are leaving for locations like Auburn, Syracuse, and Buffalo.

No dates have been set for when RUNAP and RRH will resume negotiations.
