The latest news among the PostDocs Union activity is released by the Rutgers AAUP/AFT. It was not in the news at all prior to this one, as my blog follows all the postdoc unionization activity in US and around the globe, I was bit surprised to see an advanced stage of unionization already in progress at Rutgers University, it is a great news!. I wish the Rutgers PostDoc all success and great benefits from their struggle to get better recognition...!

Rutgers Postdocs We need a union
First UCONN Health Center, then it was UC Campuses and now, it is the Rutgers turn to Unionization of PostDocs.......it is just the beginning of fruition of what UCONN PostDocs did few years ago...............!
Postdocs voted in favor of unionization with AFT Rutgers, AAUP-AFT. Working together with great solidarity in a timely fashion, we have been able to file our petition for union representation with the New Jersey Public Employment Relations Commission (PERC) on June 12, 2009!
We did it!
