Congratulations to the Hunterdon Supervisors who ratified a new contract covering 2013 to 2016 after a long round of negotiations.  The new agreement provides for raises of 2% or $1,350 in two years of the agreement and another 2% in the final year. 

 

Governor Christie's argument to the courts is the State is not obligated to make full pension payments under chapter 78, and that chapter 78's specific language does not create a contractual right to these payments. 

But he says otherwise in a town hall meeting from June 2011 when the law was being finalized. 

Here are his words:

"When we passed the first phase of pension and benefit reform, one of the things we all agreed to was we would get back up to speed on the pension payment, under law, one seventh at a time starting this year. So this year's payment will be 1/7th of the actuarial amount, and next year's will be 2/7ths and so one until we get to the point where we are making the full payment. 

That schedule is codified into legislation that you have right now and makes it a contractual right...

...I will take my share of responsibility for inheriting this and not being able to fix it in the first year I was there to get to a full payment. You're absolutely right. But what I also did was force bipartisan compromise last March to put a realistic schedule together of getting to full payment and now agreeing in this legislation to making that a contractual right of the people who are depending upon that pension."
