AFSCME New Jersey

We believe that every person working to sustain their community deserves respect.

Members of AFSCME’s law enforcement community take countless risks to keep our communities safe.

The day after he was released from a hospital, a bruised and swollen Kelvin Chung told a state Senate committee that state employees like him need collective bargaining rights to advocate for safety on the job. “I want you to see my face. We need a voice on the job, so this doesn't happen again to anyone else,” said Chung, a corrections officer.

We stand in solidarity with Governor Murphy, and believe that he has proposed a responsible budget and he needs our support to help get it passed. 

Tell your legislator: DON'T balance the budget on the backs of working people. Governor Murphy's budget invests in education and transportation, provides a record pension payment and puts a tax only on New Jersey's millionaires.
