HPAE FXB/CHP Update – December 1, 2014

Based on communication we received from CWA this afternoon, we understand that our brothers and sisters in the DCP&P Local offices have postponed their planned job action due to the State conceding to demands for enhanced security. Faced with the threat of a statewide walkout, the State has begun to assign armed guards to offices across the state and has presented CWA leadership with an expedited plan for expanded security.

We will continue to demonstrate our solidarity with CWA by calling for the State to provide for armed guards and metal detectors in every office and we will continue to demand that Rutgers also take appropriate action to improve security for our members.

We have filed a grievance demanding that the University meet with your Local 5094 leadership in order to address employee concerns and provide the Union with a plan for improved security statewide.

We are also happy to report that the victim of the attack in Camden has been released from the hospital.

In Solidarity,

Tom Murphy
Co-President
HPAE Local 5094
