Enactment of a statewide earned sick days law in New Jersey is an economic and moral imperative for all families in our state. It is for this reason that UULMNJ has partnered with Working Families United for New Jersey, Inc. – a coalition of over 256 union, community, progressive, and faith organizations – and is diligently working to ensure passage of this legislation.
Thanks to the unwavering resolve of our coalition partners, we were able to secure passage of landmark legislation including Paid Family Leave and the minimum wage increase. This same commitment will ensure we are successful when it comes to earned sick days.
Coalition members have met with Assembly Speaker Vincent Prieto (District 32) to discuss the importance of posting the earned sick days bill (A-2354/S-785). We are confident that this legislation will come up for a vote in the full Assembly this spring, which is why our legislators need to hear from us now!
