Local 5030 negotiations update: mediator joins bargaining
A federal mediator joined the negotiations on Tuesday to help find a path to a fair contract for our Union and HMH.
Union members made our contract priorities clear at last Friday’s membership meeting, and our committee relayed the message.
- STAFFING – Today was spent discussing HMH’s staffing proposal was vague in content and lacking in specifics as to how it would address the on-going chronic short staffing to ensure quality and safety in every department of our hospital, on every shift.
- UNRESOLVED ISSUES –
- Fair raises & implementation of step increases
- A living wage, $15/ hour minimum, for all staff
- Affordable Health Insurance
- Length of Contract
Our HPAE sister locals at Jersey Shore and Southern Ocean start bargaining with MHM on June 21st. We are all in this fight for a fair contract together! Our team returns to bargaining again on Thursday, June 8th.
