In mid-April 2023, thousands of full-time faculty, adjunct faculty and graduate student workers at Rutgers University staged an historic five-day strike at campuses across New Jersey. It was the first strike among academic workers in the school’s 257-year history, and three locals of the American Association of University Professors (AAUP) stood together on the picket line and in negotiations to achieve significantly improved contracts for Rutgers academic workers overall. One year later, Rutgers rank-and-file members and union leaders identify six lessons learned from their experiences preparing for, and engaging in, the 2023 Rutgers academic worker strike.
