“The Signal” publishes a piece on the current condition of TCNJ’s Faculty

Below you will find an excerpt from an editorial piece recently published in “The Signal”.  The president of our AFT Union, John Krimmel, relays some of the struggles and concerns that have been brought about since our contracts expired.

While being a professor is a full-time job, some professors have had to take on second jobs because they are no longer making enough money as a professor, according to John Krimmel, president of the College’s American Federation of Teachers Union and an associate professor of criminology.

Unionizing Pays Big Dividend for Professors (The Chronicle of Higher Education)

A recent article from The Chronicle of Higher Education states the benefit of unionizing.

“Full-time instructors at regional public universities earn an average of about $21,000, or nearly 25 percent, more in pay and benefits annually if they belong to a union, concludes a groundbreaking new study of compensation at such institutions.

The location and size of the employer also makes a big difference. Those in larger suburban public universities, the highest-paying category of institutions studied, earned an average of nearly $17,000, or 20 percent, more in pay and benefits annually than those at midsize rural institutions, the lowest-paying category.”

TCNJ AFT Union Donates to Local Antheil Elementary School


In January, TCNJ AFT Local 2364 donated money $1,500 to Antheil Elementary School. This money will go to the purchase of services and products that will aide in their students development of better social skills. In an effort to make “time-out” more productive, students will observe a series of short videos and cartoons, and will then answer questions. The hope is that whatever mistakes the children made that got them sent to the principles office will be reviewed and they will learn how to interact with one another better.

Last Semester’s Union Walk

In December of Fall 2015 TCNJ AFT Local 2364 held a Solidarity Walk around campus. This walks goal was to raise awareness amongst students and fellow CWI staff. During the walk professors and staff explained to students how we are all currently working without contracts and what exactly that means for us.
