NJ FMBA Endorses Governor Phil Murphy

When was the last time you heard the whispers of arbitration caps?  Chapter 78 being reintroduced?  The Governor’s budget address and the state of the State address targeting public employees?  I will tell you.  It’s been almost 4 years.  While reflecting back on the last administration nauseates me, it is imperative to never forget.  We had zero relationships and contacts with the Governor’s office and most State agencies that affect our member’s lives were ordered not to take our calls.  We were on the defensive more times than not with Legislation.   Life was different and extremely challenging for our union during those times.
