CWA RATIFIES CONTRACT WITH MURPHY ADMINISTRATION COVERING 35K WORKERS

(TRENTON, NJ)  Today, the Communications Workers of America (CWA), AFL-CIO announced that it has ratified a Contract with the Murphy Administration.  The Contract covers 35,000 workers employed by the Executive Branch of New Jersey State Government in the Administrative/Clerical, Professional and Supervisory Bargaining Units.
