Local 5105 Member Alert: Nurses Week Actions!!!

As the Hospital continues to push proposals that force us to do more with less, we need to send a strong message that we are united as we fight for our priorities of safe staffing/ratios, health and safety and retention and recruitment of nurses. These priorities are necessary for us to provide the care our patients deserve!

CALL TO ACTION NURSES WEEK EVENTS! DO SOMETHING THAT MATTERS to celebrate US and send a message that Safe Staffing ratios can no longer be ignored!

On May 9th, our local will be doing a car caravan led by our Safe Staffing mobile billboard! We NEED strong member participation to send a powerful message to our employer and the public! We will be meeting in the Lumberton Plaza parking lot (1638 NJ-38, Lumberton, NJ 08048) at 6:00pm. Look for the huge mobile billboard and join the caravan! We will be driving around the Hospital demanding safe staffing both at our hospital and statewide. Decorating of cars to support our safe staffing message is strongly encouraged! Event will be done in time for those working at 7pm to then go to work.

We also continue to ask each of you to sign up for our SAFE STAFIING RALLY on May 11th in Trenton. This is a critical opportunity to build on the momentum from the recent strike in New York and calls from nurses all around the county for mandated staffing ratios. We need a huge turnout to convince our legislators that SAFE STAFFING SAVES LIVES!

Please register here to attend the May 11th rally and make your voice heard! https://www.eventbrite.com/e/may-11th-rally-for-safe-staffing-registration-533967339687

Bus available to Rally in Trenton and will be leaving from the Lumberton Plaza parking lot.
