PSC members will have the opportunity to meet with State lawmakers in Albany to demand REAL investment in public higher education. Lead by our Union President Barbara Bowen; "we will push for an Executive Budget that includes funding not only for free tuition, but for increased investment in public higher education." We need to call on our state lawmakers to invest and give CUNY the resources it needs.
The union is working in Albany with NYSUT, our statewide affiliate, and with other coalition partners on a series of concentrated advocacy days:
- NYSUT Higher Education lobby Day, Wednesday, March 1 - Thursday, March 2 (Registration for this lobby date is now closed.)
- Student/Faculty/Staff Higher Ed Action Day, Thursday, March 2 (One-day round-trip to Albany with students)
- NYSUT Committee of 100 Lobby Day, Monday, March 6- Tuesday, March 7 (Registration for this lobby date is now closed.)
Please note, the first day of each NYSUT lobby event is a traveling day. There will be a briefing scheduled for the evening and on following day we will go to the Capitol to lobby legislators. Members can travel to Albany via Amtrak or car. NYSUT reimburses all expenses for activities; i.e. hotel, meals and travel. Hotel accommodations are covered based on double room occupancy. Members can also make the round trip to Albany in one day with students on the buses for the Thurs., Mar 2 Student/Faculty/Staff Higher Ed Action Day.
