HPAE local 5094 Bargaining Update and Important Membership Meetings- Not to Miss
The wage proposals from management are just too low to accept. If you want to get to a place where we can move management, be at our upcoming membership meetings, we will discuss this in detail and voice your view: your active participation is key to settling the best contract possible for all members.

Management presented 24 counter proposals – most of which rejected our proposals to make improvements to the contract that are important to our members. The University rejected proposals on equalizing parking rates and vacation accruals to Rutgers-legacy levels (a week difference for those between 5 and 10 years), grievance process for promotions, transfers, re-classifications and salary adjustments, increased notice for layoffs, and stronger language for declarations of a State of Emergency.
Even still, there are Union victories to recognize as we press forward towards settlement.
In an atmosphere created by the employer that is not amicable to our rank and file, we are standing strong on our stance that there be NO CONCESSIONS and have made improvements that are important to point to which we will go into much more depth in the upcoming General Membership Meetings:
- Comp time in half day increments, no longer requiring our membership to work additional hours without appropriate compensation.
- Notice of Weingarten Rights in investigatory settings, assuring that you know when you are walking into a setting where you could face a discipline based on information that you share.
This is our fight to win, be part of making this the best contract possible through your participation.
