A message from State President Pat Colligan

Thank you to all the PBA members who traveled to Trenton yesterday to fight for our entire NJSPBA membership.  Assembly Speaker Prieto’s decision to delay a vote on the Atlantic City recovery legislation hopefully allows the leaders of our State, the City and the PBA to develop a fair compromise.  Any compromise needs to protect our employee collective bargaining rights and local voting rights while getting Atlantic City back on the path to fiscal recovery. Now is not the time for ego and selfishness.   The next vote on this matter is scheduled for Wednesday, please let as many of our PBA brothers and sisters as possible know that we may need support in Trenton again next Wednesday. Speaker Prieto has opened up the door to a compromised solution and now all the players need to do is just walk through it.
