Our union is inviting all Rutgers graduate workers or postdocs on fellowship to join our union and organize with us to advocate for the public university we need and deserve. With a strong and united union, we can put pressure on the administration to do the right thing. But we are only as strong as our membership.
Rutgers only recognizes class 1 postdocs and grads who are teaching and research assistants as part of our bargaining unit, but we aim to change that. We’re organizing to make sure we represent grads and postdocs who are moved to fellowships. So we’re asking you to become a fellows member, with the right to vote in union elections and run for office. We have set a special fellows dues rate of $10 a month for the 10 months of the academic year, which we will collect through recurring monthly credit or debit card payments (Note: the annual cancellation of fellows dues collection ONLY applies to fellows members of the union.)
Please click the button below to join your union as a fellows member. You’ll be asked to approve monthly payments of $10 a month. Don’t worry about canceling these payments; we’ll do that automatically at the end of the academic year in June. When you fill out the form, give us the billing address of whatever card you use for payment, but please list your preferred personal email address and telephone number.
