"We've kept our promises. Albany, it's time to keep yours."
The PSC is airing a radio ad in the Capital District and New York City urging Albany to honor CUNY’s legacy and keep its promises to students.
In a release announcing the ad buy, PSC President Barbara Bowen said, "New Yorkers need to know the State is in danger of breaking an important promise to students and their families. Albany can keep its promise this year and fix the broken promises of the past by providing the full funding to CUNY.”
After a successful week of organizing during National Adjunct Action Week (click "read more" for photos), adjunct faculty are working with their PSC chapters to build adjunct power in the union and support the union's contract demands for job security and movement toward pay parity. To get involved in the contract campaign and the adjunct union membership drive, contact Sam Lewis (email@example.com) or come to the next "first Friday" meeting of the committee for part-time instructional staff.

Tell Albany to keep its promises to CUNY students
Click this link to send an electronic letter to lawmakers demanding a better State budget for CUNY.
The Executive Budget does nothing to restore years of underfunding for community colleges and doesn’t cover basic annual senior college cost increases for energy, rent, fringe benefits and collective bargaining increases. Tuition increases are going to cover basic operating costs instead of to improve education because Albany is failing to keep its promises to fund CUNY.
Legislators need to hear from you about the challenges of teaching and working at our underfunded university. Send a letter today.
