The Daily Targum
December 9th, 2014
The semester’s first Board of Governors meeting, held two months ago
at Rutgers-Camden, was a quiet affair. Of the several rows of seats,
only the first was filled.
At the semester’s second and final
Board of Governors meeting, held Dec. 9 at Winants Hall on the College
Avenue campus, members from the Rutgers chapter of the American
Association of University Professors-American Federation of Teachers
shouted rally cries. Almost every seat was filled by a protester.
AAUP-AFT members’ clamoring could be heard from outside Winants Hall:
“What do we want?” they chanted. “Fair contracts. When do we want them?
The protestors toted large red and white signs displaying
messages such as “President Barchi: Fair contracts now,” and “Rutgers
works because we do: Bargain in good faith.”
