Local 5142 nurses at Salem have ratified their contract!

Salem nurses voted overwhelmingly to ratify a new contract with Inspira yesterday! This will take effect on June 1. We secured a comprehensive agreement that includes new language on staffing, scheduling, on-call, reassignment, cancellation, wages, and many more articles that address our daily working conditions. We are proud of the gains we were able to make after many years of difficult negotiations with our former employers.

Final signed agreement: https://www.hpae.org/wp-content/uploads/2023/04/Salem-TA.pdf

You’re also invited to join other HPAE members from around NJ to fight for safe staffing ratios. Our union is holding a rally on May 11 in Trenton to show our support for this important legislation that protects providers and our patients. Sign-up today at hpae.org!
