New Jersey Child Care Workers Ratify First Contract
Source: CWA

Workers at a New Jersey childcare center have unanimously ratified their first contract, 25-0.

Trenton-based Capital Child Care employees will see a pay increase, additional paid holidays, a grievance procedure and modest benefits.

Capital Child Care workers voted to join CWA Local 1039 just last March after suffering low wages, no health care and zero benefits. Management fudged time sheets to avoid paying overtime, and employees regularly suffered deductions from their paychecks for items Capital Child Care owners did not even provide. Workers, who care for about 150 infants and toddlers each day, had voiced serious concerns about working conditions and child safety.

During contract negotiations, those fears were confirmed when they discovered they were, in fact, being paid wages far below industry standard for the area.

"Our workers provide first-class care for children of hard-working families and they deserved to be treated justly," said Lionel Leach, president of CWA Local 1039.
