Working Families United for New Jersey, Inc. Launches Statewide Campaign in Support of Earned Sick Time: Following its successful "Raise the Wage" campaign, Working Families United for New Jersey, Inc. was honored to once again be asked by legislative leadership to shepherd another social economic justice campaign for working families on earned sick days. The campaign will seek to educate the public and elected officials about the importance of establishing an earned sick time policy for workers - a policy that brings social and economic justice to the workplace.

The Next Up Committee (Youth Caucus) suggested to the union leadership that we develop a facebook page assist the local in their communications efforts. After much discussion the Committee was able to show that facebook and social networks if developed properly are useful tools for the constructive dissemination of information and is something that would help take the local into the future. So please join your brothers and sisters and "LIKE" IBEW Local 94 on facebook. - Joe Checkley

Special thanks to all of you who have been doing the Labor Walks. The labor movement is counting on us to ensure that we elect Cory Booker to the U.S. Senate on Wednesday, October 16th, and elect Barbara Buono as Governor, elect all endorsed Legislative candidates, 73 rank-and-file labor candidates, and pass ballot question #2 to raise the minimum wage on Tuesday, November 5th. Every affiliated union is participating in labor walks between 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 noon.
