Who wrote these bylaws?
A volunteer committee of 23 nurses across 16 units drafted these bylaws, with the assistance of materials and examples provided by attorneys.
When were these bylaws adopted?
These bylaws were unanimously adopted by a secret-ballot vote of the membership on August 11, 2022.
What is the difference between RUNAP and the “local association” referenced in the bylaws?
For practical purposes, they will be the same thing, at least at first. But if another group wanted to form a union within RUNAP, we could be under the same umbrella for coordinating and sharing resources, but would have our own local control of our contracts and hospital issues. So the bylaws have a framework for if that ever happens.
