Did you know that excessive healthcare costs are impacting your tax bill?
New Jersey property taxes are the highest in the nation,* over two-times the national average.
According to a recent report, New Jersey could have saved taxpayers $2 billion dollars on hospital prices.**
We have come together, as some of the largest unions in the state, to call for legislative hearings on the state of hospital prices. We represent hundreds of thousands of communications workers, teachers, educators, school support staff, police officers, and building services workers. Because we want our members to continue to receive high-quality health benefits without breaking the bank for them, their families, and retirees, we need transparency in our healthcare costs, and so do you.
