Rutgers 5094 Bargaining Update: We Have a Deal! Meetings and Ratification Vote Announcement!

The HPAE 5094 United Bargaining Team at Rutgers is pleased to announce that we reached a tentative agreement with the University. The tentative agreement does not become our contract until our membership votes to ratify the agreement.

Our HPAE Bargaining Team supports this agreement and is recommending a YES vote from our members. We look forward to bringing this contract campaign to a successful conclusion.

Membership showed ourselves to be strong enough to move our employer away from any take-aways and closer to our positions at the table. Thanks to our efforts, we achieved an agreement that we believe is worth bringing to the collective for discussion and ratification.

To participate and have your say, you must be a member of HPAE 5094. The meetings all will all have the same content presented and run for about 45 minutes. The sessions will cover the full content of the agreement with space for discussion and prepare membership for the ratification process to follow.


Following the series of membership meetings, we will open a virtual ratification vote. Plan to attend one of the upcoming meetings to hear more about the details of the agreement and the ratification process.

Congratulations to all in the membership for sticking together through this challenging struggle, we come to the agreement unified in our commitment to ratifying, enforcing, and building on this strong HPAE agreement.

Know that the more members who take an active role in Union life, the stronger we are. Our contract is the result of our collective action, make today the day you commit to taking a bigger role in the future of our Union, beginning with attending an upcoming meeting, vote YES in the ratification, and get involved in the committees and organizing taking place across our Union.
