Article on PolitickerNJ - Governor Would Rather Attack Than Work on Atlantic City

If Governor Christie would devote even a third of the time he is spending these days behind a microphone, at a game, on television or, apparently, drawing up charts towards actually working on behalf of a solution for the workforce in Atlantic City we would already have a resolution.  The Governor has shown time and again that he would much rather attack from his bully pulpit than work towards compromise and today’s display at the Statehouse was no different.  Governor Christie would rather lie to the public and blame Speaker Prieto, the media, the Office of Legislative Services, and the very people working to protect Atlantic City families rather than look to the real source of the problem.

President's Message

Patrick Colligan, NJSPBA President Patrick Colligan, President Dear Trenton: a race to the VERY bottom!

To my friends in the NJ State Legislature, let me start this message by saying that my sister used to believe I was so far to the “right,” I didn’t need left shirt sleeves. Tony Wieners used to say those of us in law enforcement were conservatives with Democratic needs. Whether you are right, center or left, I just have to get S-1711 off my chest this month. In case you voted on it and didn’t get a chance to peruse it, please allow me to give you some CliffNotes from the bill:

- Amending or terminating any existing contracts (excluding financing instruments such as bonds);
- Modifying the terms, including wages and hours, or other terms of collective negotiations agreements or terminating any collective negotiations agreements to which the municipality is a party;
- Negotiating, on behalf of the municipality, future collective bargaining agreements;
- Abolishing any positions in the municipality;
- Unilaterally appointing, transferring, or removing employees.

Humor me and please go back and re-read that just one more time; it’s kind of important to those of us who have dedicated our lives to serving the citizens of New Jersey. Allow me to pull the old “Miriam Webster says” for a second. Unilateral means: “Done or undertaken by one person or party.”

Anybody want to hazard a guess who that might be?

Now, forgive me for insulting anybody but that places New Jersey public workers’ rights somewhere below Mississippi and a slight tick above China. I say New Jersey because that bill doesn’t say Atlantic City anywhere in its 22 pages. I checked.

This is a bill for all of New Jersey (granted, with some parameters). I’m not sure how anybody on either side of the aisle doesn’t read that and have the bejesus scared out of them. It really is a race to the very bottom. I hope that those of you who voted for it get another bite at the apple. I suspect you will.… Read More
