The New Jersey State AFL-CIO held its 22nd annual Labor Candidates School at the union-staffed Rutgers University Inn and Conference Center this past weekend. The school graduated a record high 36 candidates, all of whom intend to run for offices across New Jersey.
Organized labor notched a major victory today as Governor Phil Murphy signed A-3861 into law. This bill will extend unemployment benefits to striking workers under certain circumstances. New Jersey is the third state in the nation to enact this law.
Please join the New Jersey State AFL-CIO as we stand with HPAE healthcare workers on Wednesday, August 15, 2018 to conduct a one-day informational picket outside of Hackensack Meridian Health (HMH) hospitals in Hudson, Monmouth, and Ocean counties.
