- The AAUP‐AFT has reached a tentative agreement [pending ratification from their membership] with Rutgers management to end the salary freeze and renew the collective bargaining agreement for their Faculty and EOF units.
- The URA‐AFT is going back to the table beginning tomorrow, January 10, with the intention to reach a similar agreement.
- The quality of the settlement we will get depends on the SOLIDARITY of our membership. If management thinks we are ready to settle for less than the faculty — they will give us less than faculty.
- Members who are angry or frustrated have two options: pressure management to give us MORE or pressure the Union negotiating team to settle for LESS. Your phone calls and emails to VP Fernandez and Edwards will help to settle the salary freeze and get us a fair and swift settlement.
See for yourselves what the difference is between the two proposals and how you will be affected. This chart is based on data from the December 2011 proposal. Remember, in the final year (2014) we will be paying significantly more for health insurance, due to the changes in the State Health Benefits Program.
