2,800 CWA Members in New Mexico Gain Access to 12-Week Paid Parental Leave for State Employees

Nearly 3,000 CWA members in New Mexico are gaining access to a 12-week paid parental leave policy for state employees after the New Mexico Governor signed an executive order last week directing the State Personnel Office to establish a 12-week paid parental leave policy for all state employees.

The policy went into effect Wednesday, Jan. 1, 2020.
