New Brunswick, NJ, May 12, 2017 — The HealthCare Institute of New Jersey (HINJ), along with the Pharmaceutical Industry-Labor Management Association (PILMA) and We Work For Health – New Jersey (WWFH-NJ), hosted an organized labor training facility tour for Congressman Tom MacArthur (R-NJ-3rd) on May 12.

This event was designed to showcase the relationship between New Jersey’s premier industry and our highly-skilled organized labor community that works to build and maintain the sophisticated, cutting-edge facilities that help life sciences companies research and discover the next generation of treatments, cures and medical technologies.

PILMA is a coalition of labor organizations and companies in the pharmaceutical industry who have joined forces to grow this important sector in our economy, create high-quality jobs, and promote medical innovations to cure disease.

We Work for Health of New Jersey (WWFH-NJ) seeks to educate the state’s elected leaders — in Washington, DC, in Trenton and across the stage — about the important contributions made by biopharmaceutical companies and their employees to the health and economic security of individuals, local communities and to the state of New Jersey.

According to WWFH-NJ, New Jersey life sciences companies maintained 15,772 vendor relationships and purchased more than $8.1 billion worth of goods and services from thousands of local New Jersey businesses stretching from Sussex to Cape May.
