IFPTE Local 194 is waging a multiple year battle against privatization and the destruction of jobs on the New Jersey Turnpike and Garden State Parkway. We have been advised by Local 194 that they will hold an event to raise the necessary resources for conducting an aggressive and multifaceted campaign opposing privatization.
Please find a flyer for this event HERE which includes an updated location and contains all the necessary details.
You can also support our Local 194 brothers and sisters by e-mailing a message to the NJ Turnpike Authority’s Chairman and Commissioners opposing privatization. Please CLICK HERE to take action.
Not only would privatization cost our communities decent paying jobs, but putting a private company in charge of toll collection on the Turnpike and Parkway would also undermine transparency and accountability to our state and motorists. Furthermore, privatization is no guarantee of long-term cost savings and could just as easily raise costs as the company seeks to maximize profits. What our state needs is more good jobs for middle class families, not companies which profit off of the backs of their workers. Together we need to fight back.
