Your efforts over the last two weeks have been outstanding. Despite the outcome, your voice was heard. We will build on what we've started to regain justice for NJEA members and all public employees.

On Thursday, 25,000 union members and supporters flooded into Trenton to protest the against the anti-collective bargaining bill under consideration by the Assembly. NJEA president Barbara Keshishian fired up the crowd, declaring, “We didn’t come looking for a fight, but if you attack us, you are going to have a fight!”

Other speakers, including rank-and-file members from many different unions across the state called on legislators to remember their values and “kill the bill.”
