CWA members in New Jersey canvassed door-to-door and mobilized a massive get-out-the-vote effort to elect Phil Murphy governor. In the wake of his victory, Murphy has named his gubernatorial transition team, including Hetty Rosenstein, CWA New Jersey State Director.
As co-chair of labor committee, Rosenstein will work on labor and workforce development, and CWA will have representation on the budget committee.
In addition, CWA New Jersey locals are preparing a comprehensive transition report for the new governor that will cover all departments and will provide in-depth policy recommendations and input to the governor “that he can only get from the people who do this work everyday,” Rosenstein said.
The report will include such areas as children and families, environmental protection, transportation, healthcare, legal issues, labor relations, staffing and more, she said.
