FOP New Jersey

NJ Labor Unions

The New Jersey State FOP will be out in full force next week to support other state labor unions in their opposition to various proposed pension changes.

A rally is scheduled for December 11th, and FOP New Jersey has put out the call for members to attend in support of fellow union members.

Please park in the Trenton Thunder parking lot. Shuttles there will take you to the State House.

DECEMBER 14, 2006, 1:00 PM

There will be another legislative hearing on the proposed pension changes.

THESE ARE YOUR PENSIONS AND BENEFITS.  PLEASE DO ALL YOU CAN TO ATTEND THESE EVENTS AND
