Results of HPAE Concerted Action Vote at Hackensack Meridian Facilities

Members from four HPAE facilities in the Hackensack Meridian Health system voted yesterday to support our local bargaining committees and oppose unfair labor practices by authorizing the committee to call for concerted activity (strike, picket, or other workplace actions) if we deem it necessary.

In the days leading up to the vote, management went all out to turn out our members to vote “No” by dividing and scaring us with a propaganda and rumor campaign. Our members answered management’s tactics loud and clear by voting over 95% in favor of authorizing the committee to call for concerted activity if necessary with a historic member turnout.

Our committees return to bargaining this week to continue negotiating in good faith to get a fair contract for our members.
