Countdown Until Election Day:

Assembly Labor Committee Advances Bills Promoting Collective Bargaining and Equal Pay

The New Jersey State AFL-CIO is proud to spearhead two bills that will advance the cause of working families across the state of New Jersey in terms of their right to a voice on the job and the right to equal pay for equal work. The Janus bill (A-3686: Coughlin) and Equal Pay bill (A-1: Lampitt/Downey) were both released from committee as shown by the votes below:

The Janus bill is designed to counteract the attacks on collective bargaining rights stemming from the recent U.S. Supreme Court case of the same name. The Equal Pay bill is a concrete step in the right direction that will reposition New Jersey as a leader in the fight for equality and workplace fairness. The New Jersey State AFL-CIO is proud to lead the charge for both of these policies. We thank the prime sponsors of these bills and Assembly Labor Committee Chair Joseph Egan for their invaluable support along with our many affiliates who enable the many diverse voices of our labor family to be heard.
