Carpenters praise new law

Sproule calls it strongest stop work order law in nation

By David Wildstein, July 11 2019 9:30 am

The Keystone + Mountain + Lakes Carpenters Union claimed a big victory on Wednesday, when Gov. Phil Murphy signed a bill that allows the state Labor Commissioner to use stop-work orders during investigations into tax fraud policies.

“The law passed in New Jersey is the strongest example of the enforcement of stop work orders in the United States, and we look forward to seeing similar laws implemented across the country,“ said KML Carpenters Executive Secretary William Sproule.

The legislation was co-sponsored by State Sens. Troy Singleton (D-Delran) and Steve Oroho (R-Franklin).

Sproule praised Singleton and Oroho for “providing construction employees in our state the protection to be treated and paid fairly and for protecting fair competition for law-abiding construction employers.”
