Momentum is growing in negotiations for a new contract, with two formal bargaining sessions and several subcommittee meetings held during the last month. Both PSC and CUNY management representatives have expressed a commitment to reaching a settlement as expeditiously as possible, given that several other public-employee unions in the city have already completed bargaining.
PSC members throughout the city have been shocked and saddened by the deaths of Michael Brown of Ferguson and Eric Garner of Staten Island. Many of us want to demand justice and express our solidarity with their communities. We also want to voice our opposition to law enforcement policies that disproportionately target communities of color and the poor—the communities of many of our students at CUNY. Our demand for justice for Eric Garner has become even more urgent since the recent events in Ferguson, Missouri.
Join us on Saturday, August 23 at the We Will Not Go Back March, organized by the National Action Network, NAACP, Communities for Police Reform, labor unions and grassroots groups on Staten Island to call for policing policies that protect all New Yorkers.
The Professional Staff Congress and The City University of New York have reached a landmark agreement with the City of New York on inclusion of eligible CUNY adjuncts in the New York City Health Benefits Program. The agreement provides regularized health insurance for an important part of the CUNY teaching workforce and contributes to stabilizing the finances of the PSC-CUNY Welfare Fund.
