New Jersey Union Sues State Over Pension Contributions

The Communications Workers of America Local 1033 sued New Jersey today, claiming Governor Chris Christie seeks to illegally require government employees to pay more for pensions.

The governor, a first-term Republican, is trying to “unlawfully shift” to union members the “cumulative costs of the state’s chronic failure to fund required contributions” to pension plans, according to a complaint filed in federal court in Trenton, New Jersey.
