Nine-thousand faculty members at Rutgers have agreed to strike Monday, stopping classes weeks before spring finals.
Picket lines are expected tomorrow on Rutgers' three main campuses. A rally with the three striking unions is scheduled or 1 p.m. at the New Brunswick campus.
The unions say they are demanding fairer wages, notably for adjunct professors and graduate student employees.
Gov. Phil Murphy said in a tweet that he was calling on Rutgers and union representatives to meet in his office Monday "to have a productive dialogue."
This is the first strike in the 257-year history of the university.
