Responsible Collective Negotiations Held in Both Houses

Many thanks to all of you who reached out to your Legislators and raised objections to the “Responsible Collective Negotiations” bill (S-3810/A-5862). The legislation was held in both houses.

The League is by joined and also thank the New Jersey Association of Counties, New Jersey Conference of Mayors, New Jersey Municipal Managers Association, Government Finance Officers Association of New Jersey, New Jersey Association of County Finance Officers, and New Jersey Association of County Administrators in strongly opposing this legislation as it would clearly open the door for public-sector unions to negotiate previously non-negotiable items.

Your calls, emails, and outreach were critical in convincing the Senate and Assembly to hold the legislation. However, the legislation remains at 2nd reading in both houses and we encourage your continued outreach as the bills could be scheduled again at a future voting session.

For more on this legislation, please see our Legislative Alert from Thursday, June 23.
