NJELSA Challenging New State Law
The New Jersey Electronic Life Safety Association (NJELSA) is legally challenging a new NJ law that prohibits licensed alarm dealers from working in any facility receiving public funds unless they were participating in an approved apprenticeship program with an ERISA certified pension trust fund. This bill effectively forces all alarm dealers to either stop doing business with clients they may have serviced for decades or pay the unions to participate in their plan.
Unfortunately, some of NJELSA’s members have already been denied renewal of their public works permits, others have capitulated by paying thousands of dollars to unions to retain the right to do business with their customers.
TMA members who do business in New Jersey either directly installing systems in publicly funded facilities or monitoring these accounts for their customers may want to get the details and learn how to best protect their business in the state.
