Increasing CUNY adjunct pay to $7,000 minimum per course is essential to student success and the right thing to do. CUNY sends the wrong message about the value of college education when it relies on adjunct faculty paid a shamefully low wage to do the majority of its teaching.
$7K Advocacy Day, April 24
CUNY's two-tiered labor system is a direct result of years of disinvestment by the State; it will take significant reinvestment to more than double adjuncts’ starting pay. That's why we're traveling to Albany on Tuesday, April 24 to make the case for $7K. Click here to sign up. This is a one-day event. The bus will leave NYC early in the morning and return later that evening. When you sign up, a PSC organizer will contact you with more information.
