Local 5089 Rutgers RNs contract update, May 3

Our HPAE Local 5089 Negotiating Committee held our third bargaining session with Rutgers University on May 3, 2018.

Below are the updates from the session:

  • We presented a third round of contract proposals to Rutgers including proposals regarding State of Emergency, the Grievance procedures, Public/Private Partnerships, and Hostile Work Environment.
  • Rutgers asked clarifying questions about the proposals but provided no responses today.
  • Rutgers has yet to provide HPAE with an initial set of contract proposals but stated they would be presenting their initial round at the next session on May 23rd.
  • We addressed Rutgers lack of response regarding our information request. They stated the information is being collected and they will notify us by the end of the week when it will be provided to HPAE.

We will continue to negotiate diligently with Rutgers until we have reached a successor agreement. We need your support.

Our next negotiation date is May 23, 2018.

In Solidarity,

Local 5089 Negotiations Committee
