TAKE ACTION: MAKE THREE CALLS FOR A FAIR BUDGET

After 8 years of Chris Christie, New Jersey needs to rebuild services. Governor Murphy has introduced a budget to do just that. Instead of relying on budget gimmicks and one-shots, Murphy wants to invest in our communities by ensuring millionaires pay their fair share and by closing corporate loopholes.

But some Legislative leaders are talking about shutting down state government or even more health care and pension cuts to public workers before raising taxes on millionaires. New Jersey needs sustainable, new revenue– not one-shots or cuts that balance the budget on the backs of public workers.

Take action by calling your NJ State Senator and your two NJ Assembly members now. Tell them to support Governor Murphy’s budget with sustainable new revenue, including a millionaire’s tax.

(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.

“This Contract finally closes the book on the Christie Administration,” said New Jersey CWA Director Hetty Rosenstein.  “CWA was unwilling to permit Chris Christie to flout the law and destroy collective bargaining.   We held our ground, and are heartened that the terrible Christie chapter of New Jersey history is now over.  Our members were very supportive of CWA’s commitment to hold out. And we are ecstatic that they’ve overwhelmingly ratified this Agreement.”
