2016 New Jersey Revised Statutes
Title 2b - Court Organization And Civil Code
Section 2B:11-2 - Findings, Declarations
2B:11-2. Findings, declarations
2. The Legislature finds and declares that:
a. As a result of voter approval in November of 1992 of a constitutional amendment and pursuant to the provisions of the "State Judicial Unification Act," P.L.1993, c.275 (C.2B:10-1 et seq.), the State is to assume certain costs of the judicial system;
b. The most important resource of the judicial system is its personnel;
c. State assumption of the costs of the judicial system offers the opportunity to bring judicial employees, whose positions were previously funded by the 21 counties, into a truly unified judiciary;
d. Both the representatives of the judiciary and the majority representative of the employees of the judiciary have freely and voluntarily entered into a letter of agreement, not part of this act, concerning certain aspects, as described therein, of the employer-employee relations process in the judiciary, which letter is enforceable in accordance with its terms;
e. It is, therefore, altogether fitting and proper to ensure fair treatment of county judicial employees upon their transfer to State service and in the process effectuate a unified judiciary so that its more than 7,800 trial court employees, together with the 1,500 State-level judicial employees, will provide greater effectiveness in the trial court operations, greater accountability in the courts and greater flexibility in meeting the demands placed on the State's judiciary.
