On Saturday, September 30th, the AFT Local 1904 proudly joined with AFT Local 6025 (Adjuncts) and other members of our campus community in celebration of Montclair State University's Homecoming 2023! Two two AFT Locals shared a table on Chapin Drive, with the AFT Local 1904 end staffed by our Office Manager extraordinaire, Deb Corasio, along with Treasurer Mike Heller, and President Rich Wolfson. We welcomed alums and current students, members of their family, and other members of our community, and gave out AFT t-shirts, pens, pencils, key chains, and other Union swag. Like last year, we shared important information with current students and their families about the Local's scholarship opportunities. Thank you to everyone who supported us--and it was great to see those of you who stopped by to say "hi"!

AFT Local 1904 Represents as Peer Unions From Around New Jersey Stand with Rutgers in Fight for Fair Contract
Today, hundreds of union members and students demonstrated at the Rutgers-Newark campus to demand that the Rutgers Administration and Board of Governors negotiate with Rutgers faculty and staff unions for a fair contract. Our Rutgers colleagues have worked for eight months since their last contract expired. After refusing to negotiate for months, Rutgers has recently returned to the bargaining table with offers that fail to address major labor issues including: Affordable healthcare, raises that reflect the drastic increase in cost-of-living, job security of part-time lecturers, and living wages for graduate student workers.
Members of AFT Local 1904 Vice President for External Affairs, Bill Sullivan, and President Rich Wolfson (pictured here, standing in the shadow of “Scabby,” the infamous, symbolic, inflatable rat provided today by International Operating Engineers Local 825) joined with other union members and leaders from across all trades and sectors in support of Rutgers employees.
