The New Jersey State AFL-CIO is proud to announce that over 100 labor elected officials in New Jersey have signed onto a letter, which you can read HERE, underscoring the threat of the U.S. Supreme Court case, Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association. This level of solidarity is unparalleled, and is only made possible thanks to the New Jersey State AFL-CIO Labor Candidates program, which has achieved 864 election victories since 1997, making it the only one of its kind in the nation.
The letter signed by currently serving public officials, U.S. Congressman Donald Norcross (D-01), Senate President Stephen Sweeney (District 3), state Assembly members, county elected officials, and dozens of municipal office holders, draws much needed attention to a case of paramount importance to the future of our labor movement. We thank our brothers and sisters for their leadership on this issue and ongoing commitment to all working families.
We believe the U.S. Supreme Court should reject this attempt by wealthy special interests to make it even harder for working people to come together, speak up for one another, and get ahead. But, no matter how the U.S. Supreme Court rules, our solidarity will allow us to persevere.
Please show your solidarity, by sharing this letter with your friends and family. Thank you as always for your efforts to safeguard the collective voice of working families.
