The results are in and CWA members statewide voted overwhelmingly in favor of a dues increase by an 81 percent “YES” to 19 percent “no” vote! In Local 1037, we had 88% support for the measure, as members voted 2,566 to 343. This means we can afford to run an effective campaign to pass the Constitutional Amendment on the ballot this November requiring the State to fully fund our pensions!
But this vote was just one step in a much bigger campaign – and we need EVERY MEMBER to commit to making sure we win the Constitutional Amendment in November. That means talking to your friends, family and co-workers, but it also means phone banking and door knocking and anything else we need to do to bring our message to the voters. Together, the 800,000 New Jersey residents who are current or future retirees can win – if we all do our part!
