You’ve gotten more urgent messages from us this year than you wanted to read or we wanted to write, so we’ll keep this last one short.
Thank you for all you’ve done for Rutgers and for our union during a year that brought so many unimaginable challenges. We deeply appreciate everything we did together to try to keep our university, our communities, and our country and world safe and whole. We have a lot of hard work ahead of us. But first, please take these coming days to rest, heal, relax, and enjoy the company of family and friends. This has been a year like no other, and we all need a little time to recover. From the rollout of the coronavirus vaccine to a new era in Washington, there’s a lot we can look forward to in 2021—and a lot to fight for.
One last urgent appeal, though: please add your name to this petition calling on management to keep libraries in Camden and Newark closed to in-person services until next semester and to stop putting staff in danger by ordering them to work onsite every day (in defiance of local officials urging residents to stay at home).
