Board of Governors review University issues, AAUP-AFT stages protest at meeting

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.
The AAUP-AFT members’ clamoring could be heard from outside Winants Hall: “What do we want?” they chanted. “Fair contracts. When do we want them? Now.”
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.”
