Please continue to call and write your local legislators and ask them to fully fund Rutgers with the caveat that they must tie funding to rescinding and preventing future layoffs and commit to keep us safe and healthy as reopening plans are crafted. You can find your local legislators here.
Tell them: I live and vote in your district. I need my job at Rutgers to stay in my home, keep my medical insurance and pay my taxes. All the State Colleges and Universities have negotiated furlough/no layoff agreements with their unions. Use the power of the purse to make Rutgers negotiate seriously and rescind the “fiscal emergency”.
