Lacey Chapter

Lacey's contract was up December 31, 2012.  Thank You to all members who submitted their surveys and voted.  We are now awaiting the Township Council to approve the MOA.  Members will be advised as negotiations proceed, we all hope for a quick resolution as everyone is aware Lacey had a 0% increase for three years in their last contract and essentially earned less as a result of Gov. Christie's change in Legislation.
