“This was the absolute worst treatment of employees during a natural disaster that I have ever seen.”
“It is unconscionable that the university LIED to its personnel that the driving ban in New Brunswick did not apply to Rutgers employees.”
“This is a crazy policy, and the reassessments which the union is asking for are moderate and fair.”

As Superstorm Sandy disrupted lives across New Jersey, Rutgers University canceled classes and advised faculty and students to stay home. But employees on Rutgers staff received confusing and conflicting messages about reporting to work. Now, we ask for fairness in compensating our time, compassion for those who are still trying to put their lives back together and concern for our safety. Staff are part of the community, not second class citizens.

Tens of thousands of AFT members were personally and professionally affected by Superstorm Sandy. The AFT has created this online resource guide to assist members as they continue to work hard to rebuild their homes, restore and provide essential services to the public, reopen their classrooms, and help their students and co‐workers put their lives back together.
In challenging times like these, the solidarity and support of the labor movement shines through. AFT staff are in contact with state and local affiliates to gauge their needs.
