Rutgers Faculty Union Authorizes Call for Strike

HeadlineMar 20, 2019

In New Jersey, faculty at Rutgers University have authorized union leaders to call for a strike as ongoing contract negotiations have failed to reach an agreement. Union members are demanding more full-time faculty, equal pay for women staff, increased staff diversity, job protection for librarians and a salary raise for teaching assistants. If the union does decide to strike, it would be a first for faculty and graduate employees in the school’s 253-year history.
