At the University Senate meeting last week, President Holloway said that “equal pay for equal work…is a powerful phrase that is compelling on its surface, and it ignores the layers of complexity underneath it.”
What does this mean for the 2,700 adjunct faculty who are asking the university to pay them the same per course for doing the same work as full-time non-tenure-track faculty? Or full-time faculty in Camden and Newark who continue to be paid 20 percent and 10 percent less, respectively, than New Brunswick faculty? Or women at Rutgers who have ongoing concerns and unresolved issues about pay inequity because of administration inaction? Will the administration use their record $818.6 million of reserves to ensure graduate students whose work was delayed by COVID have the funds they need to complete their degrees?
What’s so complicated about equal pay for equal work? That’s a question we want to ask President Holloway and the Board of Governors when the Board meets in Camden on Thursday, October 6.
We’ll be outside the Camden Campus Center (326 Penn St.) from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Join us and let the Governors and President Holloway know that we want our demands for dignity, fairness, and equity met for everyone on every Rutgers campus. Click here to tell us you’re coming!
