Protesting PBA Prez Colligan Stays Clear of the Chamber Train

Irritated by the New Jersey Chamber of Commerce’s support for the extension of the two percent cap, Pat Colligan, president of the New Jersey Policeman Benevolent Association, boycotted this year’s Walk to Washington event and spread the word for others friendly to the cause of public safety to stay off the train.

Colligan decried the impact of the cap – imposed during the Governor Chris Christie years – to public safety unions, including the PBA and FMBA.

“We probably had an impact of 100 people,” Colligan told InsiderNJ in D.C.

He and his colleagues took the 11:28 Acela to the nation’s Capital.

“We gave our money to Amtrak instead of to the Chamber,” Colligan said.
