The current handbook (4th edition) has multiple purposes:
- To serve as a compendium of College Laboratory Technicians’ rights and responsibilities
- To familiarize newly appointed CLTs with the procedures for appointment, reappointment, promotion and other contractual protections.
- To invite CLTs to contact the chapter officers for advice and help.
This handbook is not an official document, but a simplified guide to your contractual rights under the PSC-CUNY agreement as seen by the PSC.
The official documents to consult are the Bylaws of the Board of Trustees of CUNY, the Collective Bargaining Agreement between the PSC and CUNY (the contract), the written policies of the Board of Trustees and your college governance document. There are also arbitration awards and grievance decisions in which contractual rights and responsibilities have been delineated.
