Thanks to the hard work of our affiliates and coalition partners, it was announced that earned sick time legislation (A-1827: Lampitt / Mukherji) is scheduled to be heard in the Assembly Labor Committee on Monday, March 12, 2018, at 10:00 a.m. in Committee Room 15 of the State House Annex. Assembly members Lampitt and Mukherji have been passionate advocates of this legislation, and we thank them for their leadership on this issue.
The New Jersey State AFL-CIO and its community partners have worked diligently to advance this bill, and our case has grown stronger with every successive year. With a new administration that understands the importance of this commonsense measure, we are poised to make earned sick leave a reality for all workers in New Jersey.
This bill is a win-win for workers, consumers and the communities they work in. Please join us in testifying in support of this bill. The business lobby is expected to strongly oppose this needed reform, so your support and testimony is essential to moving this bill to the finish line.
