Over a dozen CWA 1036 members and leaders joined a large group of community allies today at the State House to stand up for a strong, fair Civil Service system. The Assembly State Government Committee, chaired by Asw. Linda Stender, called the special hearing to discuss the proposed radical rule changes by the Civil Service Commission. As part of our ongoing campaign, Local President Adam Liebtag testified on the flawed "reform" process so far and the potential damage to public services and public employees. 

President Liebtag joined other union leaders, as well as community activists from Veterans groups, civil rights organizations, and good-government coalitions. Speakers were unanimous in their disapproval of the proposed changes--especially due to the potential for patronage, discrimination, and favoritism.
