When the Board of Governors meets in Camden on Thursday, October 9th, we want to make sure that they hear us loud and clear with our simple message that they should settle all campus union negotiations now - no more delays. The Board, as the highest decision-making body at Rutgers University, can direct President Barchi’s team to settle with us on a fair contract. Camden PTLs are encouraged to be part of the action because this solidarity action for your colleagues now will help the PTL Faculty chapter when they begin negotiating their successor agreement with the RU management next year.
