Versión en español

On 3/28/2024, HPAE Local 5030 kicked off bargaining with Hackensack Meridian Health/Palisades. We have an additional 17 days scheduled for bargaining at this time.

The Union presented the following proposals:

  • Staffing ratios for
    ALL bargaining units with an enforcement mechanism (meaning the hospital has to follow them).
  • A stronger staffing committee
  • The on boarding of new positions
  • ESL from day one instead of PTO
  • 4 personal days per year
  • Additional PTO time

The bargaining committee is determined to deliver safe staffing for our members along with wages and health & safety.
