Bargaining Updates

3/06/23 – The Coalition of Rutgers Unions was asked to attend a meeting with less than 24 hours’ notice because Rutgers management said they had a wonderful salary proposal to share with all. Yet the disrespect continued when their team arrived a half hour late. We received an offer that all of the unions found insulting.
