    Dear NJNU SBMC Member,

         Negotiations will start next week with the Hospital. It is important to keep updated via the NJNU delegates and unit contacts. Almost every unit has a contact person who will be updated frequently during the Negotiations. It is important to give the Union your email address and cell phone number, we communicate via text and mass emails for updates and membership meetings. It is vital that you wear your UNION STRONG button everyday to work, you can attach it to your name badge so you don't forget it. Although it is a small gesture, it has a BIG impact in sending a clear message of unity and strength, so please wear it proudly. Your Negotiating team, delegates, and contacts appreciate that gesture. If you have not received a button, let us know when you send us your email information at njnuemail@njnu.org

  • STAFFING REPORT

    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:

    1. Please do not sign that you fully understand something if you are unsure.
    2. If you find yourself in a situation that you feel is not safe for your patient or your license, please notify your supervisor as such. If they are hesitant to respond then, endorse the liability of that patient to your supervisor.
    3. Try to take your breaks or your lunch, it is not enough to get paid for the time. Everyone needs a mental health break. When a nurse takes their break or lunch, it forces management to address the staffing situation because they are forced to provide coverage.
