Statement from Governor Murphy on Contract Agreement Between Rutgers University Administration and Faculty Unions


“I am pleased that the framework that was announced between the Rutgers University Administration and union bargaining committees in my office on April 15th has led to a full agreement on new contracts. We brought all parties together earlier this month to engage in constructive dialogue and reach an agreement regarding matters such as compensation, benefits, and job security for both full- and part-time faculty members. Today’s contract agreement accomplishes all of those goals.”

“As one of the nation’s leading universities, Rutgers has long been a source of pride for our state. Ensuring Rutgers faculty are respected and fairly compensated will result in a better educational experience for students, educators, and staff. Furthermore, resolving these complex concerns through good faith negotiations is a testament that all sides can come together and work through their differences for the common good.”

“I’d like to thank President Holloway, union leaders, and Rutgers faculty for their hard work and commitment in reaching this historic agreement.”
