CWA in the House for the Signing of Affordable Housing Legislation in NJ!

Big win for working families in New Jersey! On March 20th, CWA joined other labor and community members for the signing of the historic legislation that will reform municipal responsibilities and overhaul the process for affordable housing construction. Housing is a fundamental need and a human right—we’re proud to have been part of the effort to pass this bill.

“Affordable housing is extremely important to our members,” said Dennis Trainor, Vice President for CWA District 1. “We believe that every single New Jerseyan should have the opportunity to live in communities close to where they work. This new legislation will make good on that promise, by creating a more fair and equitable system. In turn, this will help all of New Jersey’s communities and working families thrive.”
