Schedule of Upcoming Meetings and Ratification Vote

Your HPAE Local 5094 bargaining team has reached a tentative agreement with Rutgers management for a new contract covering UMDNJ “Legacy” Professionals. This is our first contract since the merger with Rutgers. We protected the standards we’ve worked long to achieve and made a number of significant improvements.

Some highlights of the agreement include:

  1. Four year contract – expires June 30, 2018
  2. Wage increases upon ratification and then again July 1st of each Fiscal Year
  3. Greater increases for lower salaries – up to 9.5% – better than the pattern for many members
  4. Retroactive lump-sum payment upon ratification for all members
  5. Protection from wage freezes like the one at Rutgers in 2010
  6. Protections from legislative increases to the cost of health benefits
  7. Improved seniority provisions and layoff rights
  8. Additional days off
  9. Tuition remission for dependent children

Members will have the opportunity to vote to ratify the new contract. We’ve scheduled a series of informational meetings on each of the main RBHS campuses to review the terms of the new contract and answer any questions you have before the vote. A full summary of the agreement will be available at the membership meetings and posted on our website later this week. We are also scheduling a “tele-town hall” conference call for members who do not work on one of the main RBHS campuses.
