Tell Pres Barchi: It’s Time to Negotiate with Our Unions

Sign the Petition

Rutgers Unions – 20,000 Members Strong!

Sign the petition to demand that Rutgers Management sit down immediately with our coalition of Unions to begin negotiations.

Labor contracts for 20,000 unionized Rutgers employees will expire on June 30, 2018. While Management has not yet confirmed a single bargaining date with any of the 25 Unions – representing everyone from maintenance workers to medical residents – the Board of Governors met in a special session early in January to discuss and approve the contract of only one employee: men’s basketball coach Steve Pikiell, who will now take home $8 million over three years. Surely, the other 20,000 people who work at Rutgers deserve some consideration as well.
 
This is a matter of basic respect. Rutgers Management must bargain jointly and in good faith with our Unions over common good issues: health care, job security, tuition costs and benefits, pay equity, and the right to representation for all employees. 

In solidarity,
Rutgers Union Coalition partners
