Save New Jersey's Civil Service Laws
New Jersey’s civil service system ensures that only the most qualified workers are hired for public jobs. The civil service system awards jobs based upon merit and testing to ensure a quality workforce for our communities. Civil service also helps to make certain that politics are kept out of the hiring process to make sure your tax dollars are protected.
The legislature is considering S-2, a bill that would suspend civil service under certain circumstances. S-2 empowers politicians to hire, fire or promote workers at their sole discretion – without any checks or balances and completely void of any rules seeking to protect taxpayers and workers.
This hurts workers and their middle class families that depend on them and the communities they live in.
Sign the petition below and tell our lawmakers in Trenton to fix S-2. Civil service works for taxpayers and workers alike - we don’t need to replace it with one that only works for the politicians.
