“I was so thankful to hear we would be receiving retro pay. I really recommend that those who are not members of the union, should join. You will get what you deserve and not being in the union, you will not have anyone advocating for you. ”

Retiree, Graduate School of Applied and Professional Psychology

Join to build our collective strength, ability to bargain strong contract and leverage our power in your office and throughout the university. You also qualify for many valuable benefits through our local and national affiliations.

Vision Care Reimbursement

We started this program because union members felt the Rutgers vision care reimbursement was not sufficient, and we decided to match this program.
