Election Safe Staffing Candidates

HPAE is urging union members to support Safe Staffing Candidates who are committed to passing S304/A4536 to mandate safe staffing ratios in our healthcare facilities. On Tuesday, November 7, 2023, voters across New Jersey will go to the polls to vote for candidates running for NJ Senate and Assembly seats as well as County and Local officials.

Every healthcare worker who is overwhelmed, overworked, and exhausted is counting on Safe Staffing Candidates to win. HPAE nurses and health professionals are ready to knock on doors and make phone calls to inform union members and voters that it is time to elect Candidates who support safe staffing in healthcare.

Debbie White, President of HPAE
