HPAE local 5030 Bargaining Update #4


Today (4/19) both sides continued the discussion on staffing and management’s proposal was to reject our staffing ratios because in their opinion “ratios do not work.” We know staffing ratios work and we need ratios now!

HMH did not put any economic proposals on the table today and said they are “paying competitive wages.” The union has all of our proposals on the table and is ready to continue bargaining.

HMH gave another counter to our ESL proposal that would now include emergency room visit, outpatient surgery, biopsy procedures and urgent care visits. We countered with our proposal which includes all the above and telehealth visits.

Our next bargaining sessions are next Tuesday 04/23 (virtual) Friday 04/26 (in person). We are encouraging members to join us on Friday the 30th at 100 Frank W Burr Blvd, Teaneck, NJ 07666 at 10 AM.

If you have not already, please sign the fair contract petition that we will present to management.
