HPAE. Putting Care First.

Two HPAE locals have reached contract settlements. Local 5091, which represents RNs and non-nursing professionals at Bergen Regional Medical Center (BRMC), resolved the remaining issues with management to achieve an agreement for a 3 year contract. Nurses employed by the Visiting Nurses Association in Essex, Hudson, and Bergen counties settled their two contracts as well. The nurses are members of Local 5107.
