Along the shore, nurses at Jersey Shore University Medical Center and Southern Ocean Medical Center and up on the river in Hudson County, healthcare workers at Palisades Medical Center and The Harborage. They demanded safe patient limits, livable wages and a workplace free of intimidation. While walking the picket line workers they urged the community, patients, family members to call the CEOs of the health system to support their efforts at the bargaining table.
The outpouring of support from the public has been tremendous. HPAE members appreciate and value the ongoing support. The HPAE bargaining teams will return to bargaining on August 22 and will continue to their fight for patient safety and workers’ rights.
