RN 'Super Union' Takes Next Step in Building Strong National Voice for Nurses With Focus on Organizing
Date:5/4/2009

Interim Leadership Established - Founding Convention Set for December

CHICAGO, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Three influential nurses' organizations late last week set in motion a process for building what some are already calling an RN "super union" with a 150,000 member united organization that will become the largest union and professional association of registered nurses in U.S. history.

Meeting in Chicago, the California Nurses Association/National Nurses Organizing Committee, United American Nurses, and Massachusetts Nurses Association, adopted an agreement that creates an interim leadership body and structure and sets a date for a national founding convention in December, 2009.

The pact also reaffirms the commitment of the three groups, and their soon to be united union, to build what leaders call a more potent, national movement for RNs with an overwhelming focus on seeking union representation for all non-union RNs, and the guiding principle that all RNs should be represented by an RN union.

In February, the three organizations first announced plans to unite. The new agreement creates an interim executive council led by a three-member council of presidents selected by each of the founding organizations. It also provides for a committee to draft a constitution for the new organization which will be known for now as the UAN-NNOC.

Next week the three organizations will work together to cosponsor a national RN Day of Action in Washington, May 13, coinciding with National Nurses' Week, to emphasize RN ratios, RN representation, and comprehensive healthcare reform.

"Our collective strength and unity will have an enormous impact on improving the lives and workplace standards for all direct care RNs, and our ability to refocus our healthcare system on delivering quality care for our patients. It's an exciting moment and opportunity,"
