Our union represents more than 3,000 full-time faculty, both tenured/tenure track and non-tenure-track, along with graduate workers, postdoctoral associates, and EOF counselors. Rutgers full-time faculty were among the first in the country to unionize in 1970, soon after public-sector workers won the right to collective bargaining.
