Your Union has been busy on a number of issues facing our membership. We filed grievances in November regarding the delay in your merit pay (which will be paid on December 30 th , retroactive to July 1 st .,) the position that the University has taken that “Satisfactory” is the norm, the RWJMS Incentive Pay system (which was paid on 12/2 and 12/16), and the one week salary “holdback” that took place during the transition from the Banner payroll to the PeopleSoft payroll.
In addition, we continue to represent our members in individual matters of concern, including non-renewals, terminations, violations of Federal laws (FMLA, ADA,) and other changes in terms and conditions of employment. Some of these cases were brought to mediation.
At this time, we are currently negotiating a number of matters, including a new process for evaluations/merit, continuation of our Librarians and Nursing Faculty portions of our contract, the new “Rutgers Health Group” and, we are negotiating the Rowan School of Osteopathic Medicine contract.
If you haven’t done so already, please send in your membership form to become a full member of the AAUP-BHSNJ. We rely on your support to make sure your contractual rights are respected. You can find a form here:
If you have any specific questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.
“ AAUP-BHSNJ is the professional Bargaining Representative for more than 1,400 faculty members and librarians of the BHSNJ.
As of July 1, 2013, based on the integration of SOM with Rowan University and the integration of the remaining units of the former UMDNJ with Rutgers University (as per the New
Jersey Medical and Health Sciences Education Restructuring Act as of 2012) AAUP-UMDNJ became AAUP-BHSNJ.
Faculty and Librarians of the former UMDNJ at both Rutgers and Rowan (and those hired into units of the former UMDNJ) are now part of the Biomedical and Health Sciences of New Jersey American Association of University Professors unit, AAUP-BHSNJ.
