JUNE 13: RALLY FOR A FAIR BUDGET AND TO STOP A STATE SHUTDOWN!

Budget Season is here and our fight to stop a State Shutdown and Pass a Fair Budget continues!

On Thursday, June 13, join your Union Sisters and Brothers for a mass rally in front of the State House in Trenton at Noon to demand a fair State Budget that includes a millionaires tax, cuts corporate welfare, protects our health benefits and funds the pension and critical state services.

Local 1037 will have buses available from multiple locations . Click here to reserve your seat on a bus and to let us know you’ll be there.

If the legislature does not pass a budget by June 30th, the State is at risk of a shutdown for the third year in a row. But we have the power to make sure the state passes a fair budget that funds critical services, protects our benefits and retirement security, and makes millionaires pay their fair share!

Dear Local 1037 Member,

In less than a year we have secured a second agreement with the administration of Governor Murphy; once again backed by a strong vote of support from members statewide. Local 1037 members supported the agreement with a 97% YES vote.

We are proud of the gains that have been achieved through our collective efforts: providing substantial savings in contributions toward health care while maintaining high quality coverage, making strong advances in wages, and strengthening our job security and other contractual language for everyone.

Thank you to the staff and Shop Stewards of Local 1037 who did an incredible job turning out a strong yes vote. A special thank you to the thousands of members who voted and who continue to stand in solidarity with the Local – a tradition we have carried forward for over 37 years. Let’s always remain proud of our Local and the work we do together.

In Solidarity,

Ken McNamara, President

Christian Estevez, Executive Vice President

Karen Cunningham, Treasurer

Emma Claros, Secretary
