Unions begin with YOU!

UFCW Local 152 represents nineteen healthcare facilities in New Jersey. This includes nursing homes, assisted living centers, CCRCs, outpatient offices, and one hospital. Our healthcare members consist of not only RNs, LPNs, and CNAs, but housekeeping, dietary, and maintenance workers as well!

As union members, these workers have their wages and benefits guaranteed in writing through their union contracts and have a voice in how their facilities and hospitals are run.

Starting a union with UFCW Local 152 allows you and your coworkers to build a better workplace and a better healthcare system – one where your work has value and you have the resources you need to treat and care for your patients.

Job Security & Grievance Procedures

You should never have to worry about whether or not you’ll still have a job next week. With a union contract, there are protections and grievance procedures set in place so that your boss can’t fire or discipline you unfairly.
