Posted on March 8, 2010 | in Labor News | by

New Jersey state workers have agreed to both furloughs and wage concessions to assist in balancing the state budget, but a new proposal that landed in the legislature would also freeze salaries for three years. Burlington County Assemblyman Joe Malone made the proposal which also includes freezing property taxes at the current level. Unions representing state workers have expressed they would consider such legislation a dismantling of collective bargaining rights. New Jersey is dealing with an $11 billion budget deficit.
