Representative George Miller (California), the ranking Democrat on the House's Education & The Workforce Committee is holding an Eforum to collect stories from adjunct faculty from across the nation—exactly the types of stories the PSC is collecting to support a campaign for adjunct job security. Job security for adjuncts is a priority demand for the PSC in the current round of collective bargaining for a new contract.
Miller and the other Democrats on the committee want to know about “working conditions of the over one million contingent faculty and instructors at U.S. institutions of higher education, including part-time adjunct professors and graduate teaching assistants, and how those working conditions may impact students’ education.” This is a chance to help make adjunct issues visible in the coming debate over the Higher Ed Act re-authorization.
The union is submitting the stories that have already been collected to Congressman Miller and the Committee Democrats, but we need more!
Union members in HEO, CLT and Research series titles are continuing a university-wide petition campaign pressing CUNY to negotiate with the PSC on the implementation of the new time-sheet system. The petition calls on CUNY to negotiate about the timesheets, and demands that any new time-sheet system for HEOs and CLTs reflect the complexity of HEO and CLT jobs and the variability of their schedules. To volunteer for the workplace petition drive, HEOs and CLTs can contact PSC Organizing Director Deirdre Brill at firstname.lastname@example.org.
