Your participation is working, turn the heat up!


As a result of the collective action of our united membership, our bargaining team is beginning to see positive movement from the employer in negotiations. Even small movement should be recognized, but with our membership waiting far too long for a much-deserved raise, increased pressure from members is needed to move the employer to a place we can reach an agreement.

Your bargaining team is holding strong, but we cannot do it alone. Members must take it upon themselves to join Union activities that advance our campaign for a strong contact. Our Union’s power comes from you, our membership. Public demonstrations of your unity is the key to achieving the contract we all deserve.

We negotiated, since our Day of Action on February 28, as part of the Coalition of Rutgers Unions and independently as HPAE 5094 United. In the knowledge that there is power in numbers, we bargain as a coalition where we have shared goals and at our own bargaining table to address issues specific to our membership.

Here is a breakdown of the topics discussed in negotiations in the last two weeks:

As Part of the Coalition of Rutgers Unions:

Wages, Health Insurance, Health and Safety, Remote Work, Fiscal Emergency

As HPAE 5094 United:

Work Outside of Job Classification/ Salary Adjustment, Promotions and Transfers, Reassignment, Evaluations, Preceptor Pay, Gender-neutral contract references

Turn Up the Heat for the Win – Take Part in Any or All of the Actions Below

This contract will affect all of us, and it will take all of us united to win an agreement we will be proud to enforce. You can count on your HPAE Bargaining Team to stand strong for members, and we call on all members to stand strong for the Union.

In solidarity,

HPAE 5094 Negotiations Committee – Justin O’Hea, Ryan Novosielski, Ana Delgado, Fatima Meadows, Jennifer Hunt, Kerry Butch, Christina Rozario, Dana LaClair, Charles Jackson, Saleena Ghanny, Susan Fenker, Robin Covington, and Mayra Barreto
