NAACP National President Cornell Brooks will Join Labor & Community Allies
The negative impact of the state takeover in Atlantic City is drastically impacting workers, residents, and businesses. We have already seen the state pursue drastic cuts to public safety, including police and firefighters. Now, the looming threat of privatization at the Municipal Utilities Authority threatens to undermine services further. Simply stated, the harsh realities of the misguided state takeover of Atlantic City are setting in and growing.
While we are always optimistic about the future of Atlantic City and the recent news of the revival of casino and other redevelopment, we cannot forget about the welfare of residents and workers that are being left behind. In opposition to the misguided state takeover, the New Jersey State AFL-CIO invites you to join us at a press conference.
WHEN: Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 1:30 PM
WHERE: Council Chambers, City Hall, 1301 Bacharach Blvd., Atlantic City, NJ
WHO: NAACP National President Cornell Brooks, New Jersey State AFL-CIO, Food & Water Watch, the Professional Firefighters Association of NJ Local 198, Teamsters Local 331, AFSCME NJ & local elected officials.
Please mark your calendars to attend and stand in solidarity with the Atlantic City community. Please direct questions to Eric Richard at the New Jersey State AFL-CIO at 609-989-8730 or firstname.lastname@example.org
