Rutgers 5094 Bargaining Update: Take Action This Tuesday, June 6, and Tell Rutgers We Deserve Better!

Send Your HPAE Team to bargaining on June 7 with your full support. On Tuesday, June 6th at 12:15 PM, Join an HPAE Solidarity Walk at locations across the state and tell Rutgers: We Deserve Better!

We kept this University running through the pandemic. Many of us at risk to our personal safety. As we lost friends and family to COVID, yet we continued to keep Rutgers University running. Now, Rutgers offers us pennies while spending lavishly on sports and real estate ambitions. It is not right. We deserve better.

Join a HPAE Solidarity Walk in HPAE Red on June 6 at locations across the state to show that we are united as we come together for:

  • True salary increases that keep pace with inflation; Rutgers has the money!
  • An end to Rutgers’ illegal subcontracting of our work
  • Health and safety protections, affordable benefits, and dignity at work for all
  • Equality with our legacy-Rutgers colleagues in parking fees and vacation accruals
  • Tuition remission that actually covers all of the programs we need
  • Remote and flexible work options that work for us, not just for the University

Tell Rutgers: if we are a beloved community, treat us like one. We can’t win what we deserve without showing that we are a strong Union.

Join Any of the June 6th HPAE Solidarity Walks, all starting at 12:15 pm. Wear your HPAE red to show our Unity!
