CWA is urging all public workers to call their State Senators and ask them to oppose changes to their pensions and benefits being railroaded through the New Jersey Senate.
The bills--S2, S3 and S4--undermine union contracts and will ultimately destablize the pension fund for all current workers. Leaders in the State Senate have said they want to pass the bills by February 22, before the state is even able to complete a cost analysis.
A wide range of educational materials from the January 20 State Worker Shop Steward's Meeting have now been posted on the website and can be found by clicking here. These materials are a must read if you are a public sector worker in New Jersey, and have a wide range of information on issues such as the state budget and the defined benefit pension plan.

CWA State Worker Shop Stewards met at the War Memorial in Trenton on Wednesday to discuss a plan of action to mobilize against increasing attacks against public sector workers, and how to promote a fair and sustainable course for New Jersey's finances.
