How is the contract funded?
A message from President Barbara Bowen, November 14, 5 PM
This is the first in a series of short messages sent to ensure that you have accurate information about the proposed contract. Unfortunately, false and misleading claims about the contract have been circulated.
The question of funding is always pertinent at CUNY. What makes this contract different from past contracts is that it comes with a commitment of tens of millions of dollars annually in State and City funding, over and above the annual salary increases and equity increases. The additional funding is committed to pay for the new adjunct office hours. The PSC won the support of the CUNY Board, Governor Cuomo and Mayor de Blasio for a major new investment in CUNY’s workforce and its students.
