RN SuperUnion Founding Convention Opens Monday
Date:12/3/2009

ambitious campaign that includes:

  • Expanding RN union representation for tens of thousands of non-union nurses.
  • Passing national legislation, including S 1031 that would establish minimum RN-to-patient staffing ratios, protecting the role of RN as patient advocate, and creating a federal program to promote nursing education and retention.
  • Coordinating national efforts to defend and improve RN standards and patient care conditions for nurses and patients in hospitals across the country.
  • Building alliances with sister nurse organizations around the world.

The Phoenix convention culminates months of preparation dating back to last February when the three organizations announced plans to pursue unification.

In May, CNA/NNOC, UAN, and MNA cosponsored, with several other nurses organizations, the first National RN Day of Action in Washington, D.C. that featured a march and rally in the shadow of the Capitol for ratios and guaranteed healthcare and a presentation by S 1031 author Sen. Barbara Boxer.

Support for the unification followed this fall with resolutions adopted separately in convention by each of the three organizations.

At the Phoenix convention, delegates will elect a three-member NNU Council of Presidents, and discuss a vision of building RN power for the future of nursing and patient care.
