Richard Tolson, Director of the Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers Administrative District Council of New Jersey, testified at the Freeholder Public Resources Committee Hearing on July 25, 2018, alleging that some of Hudson County’s most prominent developers are engaging in illegal hiring practices. It was reported that many contractors and subcontractors around the county have routinely violated labor laws. “These practices have become the model for how to develop here,” said Richard Tolson.
As a result of the hearing on July 25th, the Board adopted a Resolution. The Resolution and transcript of the meeting were sent to nine separate government entities urging them to enforce the law and ensure that any alleged violations and abuses be remedied immediately.
