Your HPAE Local 5089 bargaining team has reached a tentative agreement with Rutgers management for a new contract covering “UMDNJ Legacy” Registered Nurses. This is our first contract since the merger with Rutgers. We protected the standards we’ve worked hard to achieve, made a number of significant improvements to our previous contract and fought off concessions.
Members will have the opportunity to vote to ratify the new contract. We’ve scheduled a series of membership meetings at each RBHS campus and UCHC facility 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. Click here to download and read a copy of the summary.
Voting will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association. Voting will be by phone and internet. Members will be mailed a sample ballot and voting instructions. Voting will be open from Friday December 4 through Wednesday, December 9. More information forthcoming.
