In June 2020, Rutgers University targeted employees in Dining Services for layoff, despite multiple negotiations sessions sessions with unions to implement a “win-win” alternative to layoffs that would save the University hundreds of millions of dollars. The University instead chose to save money on the backs of hundreds of its workers who will now go without benefits or medical coverage. Shame on Rutgers and the leadership team of Joe Charette, Sal Mena and Bob Barchi.

Staff members are part of our community and they deserve to be treated with the same consideration and respect as students and faculty. Their lives are just as important as our own. Please sign this petition to stand in solidarity with staff workers at Rutgers and make it known that RU’s display of negligence towards the health of staff is unacceptable.
