HPAE’s Public Sector represents registered nurses and professionals working at Rutgers University, Rowan University, University Hospital and Cornerstone Behavioral Health Hospital.
Learn more about:

All participants will receive a copy of the “The Legal Rights of Union Stewards,” fifth edition. First time participants will also receive an HPAE “Union Rep” lapel pin. Lunch will be provided. Union reps are not eligible for paid release time. You must use a benefit day or come on your day off.
