The Board of Governors will meet in Winants Hall on the College Avenue campus in New Brunswick tomorrow (Thursday, April 20), and we’re going to be there to tell them that time’s up—we demand a fair contract now! Join us if you can at 11:30 a.m. at the corner of Somerset Street and College Avenue.
We won significant advances in the Framework agreed to last Friday night, but important issues have to be resolved before we have a full Tentative Agreement that our members will vote on. We’ve made it clear that we can and will continue the work stoppage if we don’t win the gains we need on our open issues. Everyone knows next week is the last week of classes, and no one wants to go on strike. But the administration is forcing us to take action with its continued delays.
Most of the Governors probably weren’t on campus during last week’s strike. Let’s give them a taste of our joyous, determined picket lines! Please help us send this urgent message to the Board of Governors by coming out if you can to the picket at 11:30 a.m. outside Winants Hall at Somerset Street and College Avenue.
