As the walkout at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick enters its second month, the United Steel Workers 4-200 union – representing more than 1,700 striking nurses – held a rally and press conference Sept. 5 to call attention to what it says are unfair labor practices at RWJUH.
The strike began Aug. 4, following several months of stalled bargaining over workers’ contracts with the most recent expiring June 30. RWJUH has said it is committed to reaching a fair and equitable resolution.
