USW Local 4-200 rejects proposed contract with Robert Wood Johnson New Brunswick

By staff

New Brunswick, NJ – On September 19, United Steelworkers Local 4-200 announced they voted to reject a proposed three-year contract with Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital New Brunswick.

“Short staffing remains our number one priority, and our members clearly don’t believe this contract went far enough in this area,” said Local 4-200 President Judy Danella. “We need better staffing so that we can keep workers safe on the job and continue providing top-quality care for our patients.” 

More than 1700 members who work as nurses throughout the hospital have been on strike against management’s unfair labor practices since August 4.
