NEWARK, NJ — Rutgers University professors who teach at the Newark and Camden campuses want to be paid the same as their peers in New Brunswick. And they’re willing to protest to make it happen, their union representatives say.

Last week, about 200 Rutgers faculty, staff and students marched at the university’s Newark campus, rallying for “pay equity” among the three locations.

In addition, the union is calling for the creation of a “Hardship Fund” to support international students faced with visa restrictions, immigration issues and federal bureaucratic “red tape.”
