About

From the State House to City Hall, the Legislative Affairs Department provides an important voice to New Jersey’s working families. The success of the New Jersey State AFL-CIO COPE program has led to the election of countless pro-working family lawmakers who, with the help of our affiliated unions, the New Jersey State AFL-CIO has lobbied successfully in support of many bills that have been signed into law.
