HPAE Rowan Local 5094 Bargaining Update, July 16

Our HPAE Local 5094 Negotiating Committee met for our second session for our successor agreement with Rowan University yesterday.

Below are the updates from the session:

  • The Rowan management team stated they do not anticipate having any non-economic proposals to present and therefore did not present anything at negotiations.  
  • We address the initial contract proposals we put on the table at the last session including: job series, bereavement time, and parking.
  • We passed additional proposals across the table this session including proposals on New Jersey Earned Sick Leave and the NJ SAFE Act.

We thank everyone who supported the team by wearing red shirts and their HPAE pins.

Be sure to save the date for the next membership meeting scheduled for August 1st and attend all upcoming membership meetings for updates to bargaining.

The 2018-2019 Contract books are here! Please be sure to pick one up from your Union Representative.

If you have not yet completed your membership survey, please be sure to get that in ASAP. We want to make sure each and every member has his/her voice heard at the negotiations table. Please see your union representative, a negotiations team member, or email Christine Munck at cmunck@hpae.org for a copy of the survey.

We will continue to negotiate diligently with Rowan until we have reached a successor agreement.

In Solidarity

Local 5094 Negotiations Committee
