Union tells CUNY board: it’s contract time

Clarion Feature Selection: 

Hundreds of PSC members, joined by students and other advocates, marched from the Graduate Center to the CUNY Board of Trustees hearing at Baruch College on December 4, demanding that management sit down and bargain a new contract that restores competitive pay for all positions and raises adjunct pay to $7,000 per course.

Rank-and-file members organize across CUNY to prepare for the threat ahead

The union is embarking on a grassroots, rank-and-file "recommitment" campaign to keep the union strong if a potential Supreme Court case deals a shattering blow to unions, including the PSC. Members are energized and talking to each other about why this is such a critical moment for the PSC.

Adjuncts to CUNY board: we deserve fair pay for our work

Clarion Feature Selection: 

PSC Vice President for Part-Time Personnel Susan DiRaimo was one of many CUNY adjuncts from across the city who testified before CUNY’s Board of Trustees about the hardships adjunct instructors face with what the union called an unacceptable wage for part-time faculty. The union is demanding the city and state invest funds that would raise adjunct pay to $7,000 per course, bringing CUNY adjuncts in line with their peers at other institutions. DiRaimo, like many adjuncts, made it clear that she was not a part-time worker, but a full-time worker with part-time pay.
