New Jersey Resolution Seeks To Give Public Employees The Right To Collective Bargaining

On March 24, 2014, a resolution (SCR96) was introduced in the Senate that would amend the New Jersey Constitution to give public employees the right to collective bargaining. The state constitution now gives public employees the right to form a union and submit grievances and proposals, but does not make collective bargaining a stated right. The amendment would have the effect of requiring collective negotiation with the representatives of the employees.
