Contract Ratified!

Dear MMCSC/BHBHC NJNU member: Our members have successfully ratified our Union contract for the next 2 years. We will be making the changes to the contract, getting signatures from both parties, then sending to the printer for new contract books. Please be patient with this process. For now please contact your delegate or officer for a copy of the MOA with the new changes and the wage scales. We will also post the MOA and wage scales on the website under members only section under contracts.

Tentative Agreement MMCSC/BHBHC

Your 2015 NJNU negotiating Team has reached a tentative agreement with the Hospital. We are working on securing a place for a ratification meeting and vote. When that has been scheduled we will inform everyone by email, website, postings and possibly phone calls. The meeting will take place next week most likely in two or three sessions scheduled for one day as we have done in the past.




Attached is a link to an article in the APP about the NJ staffing bill nurses throughout NJ are fighting to get passed. Please read and as the next weeks  we need everyone to attend meetings and to get involved with your Union for negotiations at MMCSC and BHBHC! Remember you are the Union not just us!

NJNU protests outside to demand better staffing ratios

LIVINGSTON — Sicker patients, more blood to draw, piles of paperwork and hours-long backlogs at the emergency department brought unionized nurses of Saint Barnabas Medical Center out to rally in front of the Livingston hospital Tuesday. To read this article, click here


NJNU continues to focus on the impact of adequate nurse staffing on patient outcomes and the various factors that can affect safe staffing. Unfortunately, the employer continues to focus on the corporate end of the healthcare industry, thus forcing our nurses to protect themselves and their patients. While there may be issues that are unique to your unit, there are still a few things that are important for every nurse to know in order to protect their license, as follows:
