Rutgers University historic strike

Unions at Rutgers University who represent adjuncts, graduate workers, full-time faculty and other titles staged a five-day strike, where at the time of Clarion publication, they received a tentative framework for major issues. The four-year contract would provide a 43% pay increase for adjunct professors, according to The New York Times. The raises for full-time faculty would be $5,000 in year one and 3.5%, 3.25% (merit) and 3.5% in subsequent years, according to a union announcement. “We all were out there and students were out there and we did this as a university,” Amy Higer, the president of the Rutgers Adjunct Faculty Union, told The New York Times.
