Barchi said he also would do his utmost to avoid polarization regarding union contract negotiations. Some of Rutgers unions recently experienced a two-year salary freeze that sparked numerous protests. The university has worked out settlement agreements with some of its major unions within the past few months.

Lucye Millerand, president of Union of Rutgers Administrators-American Federation of Teachers Local 1766 welcomed Barchi’s comments.

“I think the Rutgers staff — those of us who are not faculty but do all the other work besides teaching — would love to see a new relationship with Old Queens, which is how we refer to the Rutgers central administration and management,” Millerand said. “We would love to see mutual respect and two-way communication. That has not been the case in the recent past.”
