NJ Transit Workers Want a Contract


Every time a New Jersey Transit train thundered past the strike-threatening cold-weather garbed workers, a horn sounded to throaty cheers.

Five years is too long a period of time without a contract, the workers said this morning in Woodbridge, 750 of them backed up Democratic Party politicians, including U.S. Rep. Frank Pallone (D-6), Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop, Assemblyman John Wisniewski (D-19), state Senator Joe Vitale (D-19), Assemblyman Jamel Holley (D-20), and Perth Amboy Mayor Wilda Diaz.

AFL-CIO Prez Charlie Wowkanech anchored the event, driving the argument that New Jersey working families deserve better.

While Chris Christie hasn’t been a full-time governor, the workers have provided a critical, full-time service, they said.
