Gov. Chris Christie is pushing sweeping changes through a Civil Service Commission he effectively controls.

Un-Civil WARS: Christie Proposes Sweeping Changes To Civil Service

Christie’s civil service overhaul is the latest in a series of high-profile battles with public employee unions that have defined his governorship and propelled him to national prominence. These have ranged from school vouchers and merit pay for teachers to a landmark pension and health benefits bill that not only forced public employees to pay more, but also eliminated the right of unions to bargain on health benefits for four years.

The Christie administration's proposed civil service regulation would effectively reduce and consolidate the number of job titles by eliminating competitive examinations for promotions within broad "job bands," giving managers greater flexibility in deciding which employees to promote.

State Legislators Connie Wagner and Tim Eustace attended a CWA rally at 60 State Street, Hackensack to voice their concerns and call for more transparency.   "You don't want me, or any politician, deciding who should get jobs.  It should be decided on merit.  We support Union workers and Working Families."   USWU Representative Mark A. McCart was in attendance with Executive Board member Pari Sharif.
