Our HPAE Local 5089 Negotiating Committee met with Rutgers University for a bargaining session with Rutgers University on March 21, 2019.
As our current contract gets set to expire and we prepare to begin negotiations with Inspira, our negotiations team has met and formulated many proposals to present to management.
As our current contract gets set to expire and we prepare to begin negotiations with Inspira Woodbury, our negotiations team has met and formulated many proposals to present to management.
We made some progress but the next month will be critical to reaching a fair agreement and winning a good contract.
Once again, management rejected every proposal that we made in the last session, including language on Hostile Work Environment. Their position is that the current policies and systems that the hospital has are working fine.
They will take office May 1, 2019 and term runs through April 31, 2021. Thank you to all the outgoing officers and congratulations to the new officers.
The Nominations/Election Committee announces that there are six (6) officer positions that are up for election this year. The officer positions are President, three Vice Presidents, Secretary and Treasurer.
Your HPAE negotiations committee put together a package of the major job security issues that need to be settled in this contract including Federal Medical Leave (FMLA), seniority, the Barnabas partnership, and adding bumping rights to more job series.
On February 4th 2019, we met with UH management and exchanged several proposals and responses.
