Under public law 303, the Professional Staff Association (PSA) became the exclusive recognized collective bargaining agent for the faculty and staff at NJIT (formerly Newark College of Engineering) during the fall of 1970. In 1988, the PSA approved the affiliation with the American Association of University Professors (AAUP). We have since been known as the PSA/AAUP or simply the PSA.
Essentially, the PSA negotiates your terms and conditions of employment. If you want a voice on how the PSA conducts its business, you need to be a full voting member of the Association.
All PSA members are encouraged to become full members. If you are unsure of your eligibility for membership, contact the PSA office for assistance.
