The New Jersey State AFL-CIO is pleased to share the news of a major contract victory at Shore Medical Center in Somers Point, NJ. This is a strong contract that comes as a result of the unwavering dedication of the Shore Nurses Union negotiating team and their committed membership. In addition to preserving the terms of the previous contract, the new four-year agreement will include incremental pay increases, measures to provide stable retirement income, and a quality affordable health plan.
This victory ensures that nurses have the means to care for their own families so that they are best able to take care of their patients. This contract is vital to raising the standard of hospital care in New Jersey and prioritizing top quality patient care from the best qualified health service professionals.
We look forward to the members’ ratification of this contract that once again demonstrates the importance of having a voice on the job. Once again, we congratulate our brothers and sisters for their persistence and commitment to secure a fair contract that will improve patient outcomes and lift up middle-class families.
