Local 1036 - Professional Non-Court Related Unit of the N.J. Judiciary - Tentative Agreement!

​Court workers represented by CWA Local 1036 in New Jersey secured big wins in their tentative agreement. Workers with the Professional Non-Court Related Unit of the N.J. Judiciary (PNCR), include court service officers, attorneys, administrative specialists, and information technology analysts, and have been working for several months for a new contract. The TA includes robust wage increases, protections for remote workers, a new stipend for bilingual workers, and more. If ratified, the new contract will be the first since 2014 to raise the annual progression and will create a new maximum wage for those who have already reached their salary cap.

“When the Judiciary provided a response, whether positive or not, our team always provided several scenarios for us to consider when aiding to structure the contract, said Anastasia Jackson, a member of CWA 1036’s Bargaining Committee, on the negotiating process and the strength of the members’ solidarity. “As a steward representing the membership, I truly felt heard, which was very important to me. I gained a whole new appreciation for the hard work our union does for us as employees and I’m much more grateful to have CWA Local 1036 in my corner.”
