On Thursday, July 14, CWA 1037 Members who are Administrative Assistants at La Casa De Don Pedro, with support from NJ Communities United, delivered a petition to Director Peter Rosario demanding a pay increase for out-of-title work.
Workers have been fulfilling duties outside of their scope of work including responsibilities such as those of family counselors, food service workers, and cleaning and janitorial staff.
The workload placed upon workers with no pay increase is unjust. Workers are no longer accepting being overworked and underpaid. “Un ‘Gracias’ no es suficiente!” ‘THANK YOU’ is not enough!
