Remember this little punk because this is how careers on the Wingnut Welfare circuit are made.

A Rutgers University student sued seven local and national faculty unions Friday for last spring’s weeklong walkout, accusing the labor groups of “a selfish and illegal strike” and demanding compensation for lost educational time.

Jeremy Li, a commuter student at the New Brunswick campus who’s now a junior, wants a state Superior Court judge to declare the April strike illegal, arguing the 9,000-plus faculty who walked off the job are public employees barred by law from striking. He’s seeking class certification and says the 67,000 students impacted deserve “justice, accountability, and compensation.”

“The Rutgers faculty unions were aware that strikes would cancel classes, causing students to miss out on the education they had paid for,” the complaint states. “In fact, that was the key for them to gain the leverage they wanted at the bargaining table. So they chose to strike in spite of the damage they knew it would do to students’ educations.”

Li names as defendants the Rutgers AAUP-AFT, which represents some 6,000 full-time faculty, graduate workers, postdocs, and counselors; the Rutgers Adjunct Faculty Union, which represents 2,800 lecturers; and AAUP-BHSNJ, which represents over 1,000 Rutgers Biomedical and Health Sciences faculty. Also named are two state and two national unions (New Jersey AFL-CIO, New Jersey American Federation of Teachers, and their national counterparts) for providing “substantial assistance to the strike.”

Li must be a concerned student about his education, right?

Li, a business student who chairs the Rutgers Republicans and has served in the University Senate, has appeared on Fox News to criticize Rutgers faculty and administrators as anti-Israel and for campus COVID restrictions.

Right.
