Deangelis, Ramapo News
Dozens of professors, faculty and supporting students filled the conference room where the Board of Trustees meeting on Wednesday, Nov. 21 was being held.
The American Federation of Teachers (AFT) is a union for faculty and professional staff. The union held a statewide demonstration to draw attention to an expired contract that has not yet been renewed or renegotiated.
Joan Pernot, the head of Ramapo’s AFT office, stated, “The purpose of all of the events on the Statewide Day of Action is to inform the Ramapo community and raise awareness that 608 people that work at Ramapo have been working without a contract since July 1, 2019.”
