It is with great pride and excitement that we tell you about a recent legislative victory.
S-1780/A-1992 “The New Jersey Call Center Jobs Act” was signed by Governor Phil Murphy. This Law requires any employer in the State of New Jersey operating a Call Center with 50 or more employees to staff that call center to handle no less than 65 percent of customer volume of telephone calls, emails, and/or other electronic communications.
The IBEW 827 Officers, Business Agents, Chief Stewards, and Legislative Committee would like to thank the Sponsors of Bill S1780 for their support and advocacy of working people in New Jersey: Senators Diegnan, Turner, Stack, Lagana, and Greenstein; Assembly Member Sponsors: Sumter, Eustace, Benson, Huttle, Houghtaling, Wimberly, Jiminez, Zwicker, Egan, Johnson, Pinkin, McKnight, Downey, Timberlake, Lopez, and Jasey.
We would also like to thank the New Jersey AFL-CIO for assisting in this monumental legislation. Together, we can continue to protect working families and the middle class of New Jersey.
