A New Jersey Public Employees Right to Collective Bargaining Amendment did not make the November 4, 2014 ballot in New Jersey as a legislatively-referred constitutional amendment. At least two measures were proposed in the 2014 legislative session which would have given public employees the right to collective bargaining: Assembly Concurrent Resolution 77 and Senate Concurrent Resolution 96.[1][2]

At the time in New Jersey, proposed constitutional amendments had two ways of achieving ballot access. The New Jersey Legislature could either qualify it with supermajority approval of 60 percent in one legislative session or with simple majorities in two successive sessions. This measure did not receive the necessary supermajority required for a 2014 ballot placement. ACR 77 was introduced on January 16, 2014, and referred to the Assembly Labor Committee.[3] SCR 96 was introduced on March 24, 2014, and referred to the Senate Labor Committee.[4]
