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 Working Families United for New Jersey, Inc. – a coalition of over 256 union, community, progressive, and faith-based grassroots organizations – 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. Additionally, following a meeting with Senate President Stephen Sweeney (District 3), our coalition anticipates that the state Senate will take up this bill by mid-year.

Thank you again for your support and for leading the way in yet another crucial campaign to build stronger, thriving communities.
