New Jersey CWAers Win Back Pay for State Workers

The New Jersey State Assembly voted overwhelmingly on Tuesday to pass a bill requiring back pay for state workers locked out during the state shutdown, and the Governor signed the bill into law.

"We applaud Speaker Vincent Prieto and all those legislators who voted to pass a clean budget," said CWA New Jersey State Director Hetty Rosenstein. "We thank them for doing their job by standing up for the integrity of the New Jersey State budget, as well as the process. We also thank the legislative leaders – from both houses – for making sure our members, who were locked out during the shutdown, are paid."
