We are pleased to announce an organizing win! On Wednesday, August 24th, 2022, the LPNs and RNs at Eagleview Health and Rehabilitation in Elmer, New Jersey have chosen UFCW Local 152 to be their voice on the job!
In 2011, UFCW Local 152 organized the CNAs, dietary, housekeeping, maintenance, activity aides, and receptionists at Eagleview Health and Rehabilitation. However, licensed practical nurses and registered nurses (LPNs and RNs, respectively) were not included in the unit at that time.
In early spring 2022, Eagleview was sold. Because they had a union contract, our current union members were protected and able to keep or bargain over any changes the new owners wanted.
The LPNs and RNs at Eagleview were not so lucky. Seeing the difference in treatment, the group of united workers decided it was time for a change — it was time for union representation!
With the help of their union coworkers, Lead Organizer Pete White, and Union Representative Chad Brooks, we are delighted to say that this group of twenty LPNs and RNs has decided to join UFCW Local 152! Congratulations!! In addition to Pete and Chad, we would also like to recognize the rest of the organizers for helping to guide these workers through the process of organizing: Director of Organizing Mike Thompson, Alley Snow, Bryan String, and Will Pitts.
From here, UFCW Local 152 will help these workers negotiate their first union contract!
