HPAE Rowan Local 5094 Bargaining Update, August 21

Our HPAE Local 5094 Negotiating Committee met on August 20th for continued negotiations for our successor agreement with Rowan University today.

Below are the updates from the session:

  • We spent the day in discussions regarding wage increases and held a dialogue regarding across the board increases and step movements for the life of the contract.
  • We actively discussed the new PPO Healthcare proposal presented by Rowan and the incorporation of the new benefits and rates for our HPAE negotiations unit employees.
  • We signed a Tentative Agreement to incorporate the NJ SAFE Act into the contract for our members to reference.

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.


If you have not yet completed your parking 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
