Tell Dr. Robert Barchi, President , Rutgers The State University of New Jersey: Fairness for Rutgers staff affected by Hurricane Sandy

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.”

Read comments, share your thoughts, sign the petition to Pres. Barchi:

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.
