Local 5094 Updates

We held our third negotiations session with Rutgers management on October 7th. Here's how things stand: We want fair wages: Our initial proposals call for an average of 6% annual raises through a combination of across the board increases and step movements. Rutgers management has still not made a wage proposal.
RUTGERS WORKERS NEED FAIR CONTRACTS NOW! Nearly 20,000 Rutgers employees and our unions are in negotiations with the University for a new contract. So far, management has offered no raises to staff and proposed numerous give-backs. Most contracts have already expired. It’s time to step up pressure on management. Join us on Thursday, October 23, at 12:00 Noon, as staff and faculty from different unions throughout Rutgers mobilize for simultaneous lunchtime pickets across multiple Rutgers campuses.
The latest issue of the Local 5094 newsletter, Proactive, is now available to members. This issue has articles on the current contract negotiations, Rutgers' travel policy, and public employee issues.
