Press Conference and Protest

PSC members and state and national labor leaders will call out CUNY management’s attacks on job security provisions of our contract that protect long-serving adjuncts, Higher Education Officer series employees, and others.

Bargaining Updates 13 & 14

The PSC finished presenting our initial demands during the March 22nd and 27th sessions, and on the 27th management put forward a comprehensive offer, including across-the-board raises. CUNY’s salary proposal approximates what other City and State unions received in this round and includes retroactive pay. But it does not meet our members’ needs, is tethered to several unacceptable demands and is silent on key union priorities.
