1,000 New Jersey Adult Day Care Providers Join CWA
More than 1,000 New Jersey providers who open their homes to care for developmentally disabled adults have gained a voice on the job by joining the Communications Workers of America (CWA).
New Jersey Gov. Jon Corzine (D) signed an executive order recognizing the union last week, two days after the state Board of Mediation verified that a majority of the workers, called sponsors, signed cards seeking representation by CWA Locals 1037 and 1040.
CWA Vice President Chris Shelton says:
This is what “standing together” really means. These two locals accomplished great things by working collectively.
