Every New Yorker has the right to a quality public higher education. Tell us you want to join other PSC members and march for that right at the NYC Labor Day Parade, Saturday, September 10.
“CUNY is for the People!” read the signs carried by our community allies during the PSC’s hard-fought contract campaign. Together with the NY Central Labor Council and the emergent CUNY Rising Alliance, we reversed a planned half-billion-dollar reduction in state funding for CUNY and we defeated a proposed tuition hike. We built the power necessary for the PSC to negotiate a contract with back pay and improvements to working and learning conditions at CUNY.
The Labor Day Parade is a chance to celebrate the progress we’ve made collectively and to mobilize for the next campaigns—at the voting booth and in the streets. The PSC is committed to quality public higher education as a right for all New Yorkers and to ensuring that CUNY offers that quality education. PSC carries that banner every day, not just when our contract expires.
Be part of a big PSC turnout, a show of political force saying “Invest in CUNY. Invest in New York."
The PSC contingent will gather on East 45th Street between 5th and Vanderbilt Avenues starting at 9 AM. We will carry signs and handout flyers throughout the march. PSC marchers will step off at 11 AM sharp.
