H-PAD Statement on the Faculty Strike at Rutgers University (April 11, 2023)

On behalf of our 1,400 members and supporters, the Steering Committee of Historians for Peace and Democracy (H-PAD) expresses our unequivocal solidarity with the faculty of Rutgers.  We stand with you in the fight for justice and equality for all teaching professionals, especially the contingent faculty who educate so many Rutgers students.  We urge all of our supporters and friends to immediately write President Jonathan Holloway, and demand that he cease all threats of strike-breaking and sanctions, and meet the just demands of the Rutgers strikers.
