workers united resolution action

At Newark public schools, hundreds of food service and non-instructional workers, represented by Workers United, have been without a contract for five years and are not getting any closer to resolving this stalemate given the school administration’s unwillingness to engage in meaningful negotiations. Rather than hearing the concerns of workers, whose wages have been frozen for five years, Governor Christie and Newark Schools Superintendent Cami Anderson, decided to give substantial salary increases to high level administration staff.

Please take a moment to fill out the following form, asking your legislators to support a resolution calling on the Newark School Administration to negotiate a fair contract with the members of Workers United.
