BRANCHBURG – The faculty and staff unions at Raritan Valley Community College have agreed to new four-year contracts.

The contract calls for two percent salary raises per year and “significant decreases” in health insurance costs in two of the four years, according to Donna Gero, head of the negotiations team for the bargaining units.

“The increasing costs of health insurance has been a primary problem for workers,” she said.

“We are pleased to have come to a bargaining agreement with the college’s full-time faculty, staff and administrators,” said Donna Stolzer, a spokesperson for the college. “Raritan Valley Community College deeply values the work of its dedicated faculty, administrators and staff.”

The new contract reduces health insurance costs and establishes college-funded health reimbursement accounts (HRAs), which can be used to pay for certain medical expenses, such as deductibles and other qualified out-of-pocket expenses.
