Below please find a statement from CWA NJ State Director on today’s legislation requiring quarterly pension payments.
“CWA supports quarterly pension payments. However, unless the full amount due to the plan is appropriated, quarterly payments are meaningless. When it comes to this state’s pension, history shows we simply cannot rely on the word of the Governor or legislature. For well over two decades, politicians have proven themselves incapable of making full payments. So, without a Constitutional Amendment requiring payments, New Jersey’s working men and women could be getting quarterly payments of nothing.” – CWA NJ State Director Hetty Rosenstein
