What RMC Nurses Should Know About Unions & Union Organizing

Recently, the National Nurses Organizing Committee (NNOC)/National Nurses United (NNU)* has targeted RMC nurses for organizing. And, while we respect the rights all employees’ have to consider union membership, we feel strongly that unionization could divide our team and create dissention that could distract from our primary focus, negatively impact our patients and, ultimately, take us in the wrong direction. 

At RMC, our employees are at the center of everything we do to treat our patients and serve our community.   At RMC, we believe in:

  • Integrity: We respect human dignity and consistently promote fairness and honesty.
  • Excellence: We strive for clinical, operational, and service excellence by fostering professional development, accountability, teamwork, and commitment to high value.
  • Partnership: We work in cooperation with other care providers, guided by open communication, trust, and shared decision-making.
  • Stewardship: We advocate prudence in the use of our financial and human resources for the advantage of the communities we serve.

At RMC, we believe working together is the best way to quickly develop solutions, provide the care our patients deserve, and create the best workplace for everyone.  In short, we feel it is better to be team members working towards solutions together.
