Workers and Progressives Rally to Protect Pensions and Healthcare

On Thursday June 13th, over 2,000 workers and allies swarmed the Trenton Statehouse Annex. They were there in support of passing a millionaires' tax and protecting collective bargaining rights.

Dennis Trainor, regional CWA vice-president, said "He [Sweeney] wants you to pay more. This is an attack on unions. This is an attack on collective bargaining. And when we’re attacked, we stand up, we fight back."

Several members of CWA Local 1014 were in attendance, as well as ally CWA Local 1040 and 1084.
