CWA NJ EXECUTIVE BRANCH CONTRACT NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE | February 6, 2018

Bargaining Upate

Governor Murphy took office January 16. Both CWA and the State have acted quickly since that time to get negotiations back on track and to clear roadblocks the Christie administration left in our path. CWA’s top priorities for our state executive branch membership are to settle our long-expired contract and resolve the dispute over stalled increments as quickly as possible.

What you need to know about the State Health Benefits Plan in 2018

CWA has been on the cutting edge of trying to push back health care costs without cost-shifting.  Chapter 78 has harmed our members, caused healthcare to be too expensive, and has encouraged cost-shifting instead of cost containment. A new Administration and a reasonable Governor will hopefully lead to a more reasonable cost sharing on healthcare– but if you can, you should consider reducing your costs with these union-negotiated plans.

INCREMENTS UPDATE: GOVERNOR CHRISTIE TRIES TO STALL

We do not believe that this matter will be resolved before the end of Christie’s term. We think that the mean-spirited and arrogant Christie is stalling to try to save face and to try to leave more of his mess in the lap of the next Governor.

Thank you for your continued patience and support.
