NJ State College Faculty, Staff, Librarians Rally for Fair Contract Wednesday

Simultaneous demonstrations on multiple campuses protest lack of progress


Tenure-track and adjunct faculty, lecturers, professional staff and librarians at nine states colleges and universities in the College Council are rallying to call for a fair contract from the state with fair pay for adjunct faculty and non-tenure track lecturers to compete for talent. In addition, adjunct faculty should receive the same pay as tenure-track faculty teaching additional courses (such as during the summer) and lecturers should receive multi-year contracts to develop a stable faculty core with long-term commitments.

The state College Council is the bargaining agent for 10,000 faculty, professional staff and librarians at the nine state colleges and universities consisting of The College of New Jersey, Kean University, Montclair State University, New Jersey City University and the A. Harry Moore School, Ramapo College of New Jersey, Stockton University, Thomas Edison State University and William Paterson University. The group is currently in contract negotiations with the State’s Office of Employee Relations.
