Health union rallies as contract deadlines loom at three Hackensack Meridian hospitals

Health care workers at three of Hackensack Meridian Health's hospitals in Hudson and Monmouth counties rallied on Wednesday in a show of union solidarity as contract deadlines affecting 2,500 employees loom.

The ongoing contract talks mark the first time four union locals have negotiated together with Hackensack Meridian, which was formed in 2016 through the merger of Hackensack University Health Network and Meridian Health.

The locals are members of Health Professionals and Allied Employees, the state's largest health-care union, with about 13,000 members.

Two locals representing about 1,000 employees at Palisades Medical Center in North Bergen and 250 at The Harborage, its affiliated nursing home were the first unionized nurses to join Hackensack's workforce when Palisades was acquired in early 2016, shortly before the larger system was formed.
