SBMC Negotiations Update #4

July 28, 2020

Dear NJNU Members:

The Company and your Bargaining Team resume bargaining today virtually thru GoToMeeting.

Discussions continued over PPE and Health and Safety, Staffing Language and Staffing during the Pandemic and we received a counter proposal over those issues. The Medical Center rejected our proposal over Sick Time and have not countered our Wages/Minimums and Shifts/Differential proposals. NJNU-CWA Local 1091, reaffirms that we have an open mind, willingness and a sincere desire to reach Collective Bargaining Agreement. We are committed and request management to help us find common ground to get that agreement, and to solve the differences that have arisen.
As we move forward we will need the Members to step up Mobilization efforts. We urge our membership to wear their NJNU-Union Strong pins and make sure the Company knows that we are serious about a fair contract. If any member of the management team reaches out to you to talk about these ongoing negotiations, tell him or her to talk to your union, your duly elected representatives at the table!

We are scheduled to meet tomorrow. We deserve a fair and equitable agreement that provides for the much-needed improvements that our members have tasked us to reach.
Make sure you're signed up to receive news and updates via text message by texting the word "NursesNJ" to 69866.
An Injury To One, Is An Injury To All.

Your Bargaining Team.
