College Professors Fed Up with Lack of Contract

State college and university professors and staff are fed up. They haven’t had a raise in nearly two years. Today they marched in protest on seven college campuses around the state, in some cases delivering a New Orleans style funeral dirge as they marched.

Montclair State University Adjunct Professor Union President Bob Noonan helped lead his campus’ march.

“Ours was somewhat of a New Orleans style protest. We had a coffin and we had a couple of our music professors providing some New Orleans music. I guess the theme is the death of support of higher education in New Jersey,” he said.

The union says 10,000 professors, adjuncts, librarians and professional staff have been affected.
