Any Takeover of Atlantic City Must Preserve Collective Bargaining Rights

Joint statement by AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka and New Jersey AFL-CIO President Charles Wowkanech on the proposal to take over Atlantic City:

“Attempts to undermine collective bargaining under the pretext of solving financial challenges are nothing new.  We’ve seen it in states and cities across the country.  We know that the best way to solve problems is to collaborate with workers who are on the front lines, like firefighters, police, teachers and city employees. Governor Christie’s current proposal – which seeks to limit collective bargaining – is unacceptable.  The state Senate and the General Assembly should work together to find the right compromise that supports the principle of collective bargaining and protects the rights of working people.”
