New Jersey Gov. Christie Says He Loves Collective Bargaining

HILLSBOROUGH, N.J. (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says he’s ready to start negotiating with state worker unions, whose contract with the state is up in June.

At a town hall meeting in Hillsborough Wednesday, Christie says he has never suggested that collective bargaining rights be taken away.

Just the opposite, he says: He loves it.

Christie says he’s in favor of “reasonable” collective bargaining.

Leaders of the Communications Workers of America say Christie has yet to meet with them.
