We are very close to agreement on many issues. However, Rutgers finally presented a promised counter on out of title work and job reclassifications that we had to spend the bulk of the session reviewing and negotiating over.
We had our eleventh negotiations session with management. The action was quick with a lot of productive discussion. Shortly after lunch we agreed on a MOA for a new, three-year contract!!
At the start of negotiations, HPAE proposed to strengthen the target staffing levels for the Med/Surg departments by reducing the maximum number of patients for each registered nurse to 6 from the current rate of 10
This conference is for everyone, not just those members who will be retiring in a few short years.
After a full day of bargaining, we settled a number of issues and are closer to a contract but still have a number of outstanding items.
