*From the desk of Marie Blistan, NJEA President
On June 26th, the Assembly Appropriations Committee voted to approve ALL THREE of our Ch. 78 Relief and ESP Job Justice bills.
Today’s votes show the power of member action. After nearly two years of member advocacy, those bills are poised to go to the full Assembly for a vote as soon as Monday. When passed by the Legislature and signed by the governor, they will provide significant health care savings for members while strengthening due-process and subcontracting protections for Educational Support Professionals.
Today’s committee vote was a very important step forward, but we need to make sure these bills get through the full Assembly and to the Governor’s desk to be signed.
Please take a minute today to contact your Assembly members. Ask them to vote YES on all three bills.
