A message from President Bowen
I am happy to report that the PSC reached a tentative contract agreement with CUNY management early this morning. At last!
The bargaining teams worked straight through the night in order to finish today, and the union’s Executive Council voted this afternoon to recommend the tentative settlement.
Details of the proposed agreement will be available tomorrow; the union’s press release is below.
Thank you for the work you did to make the agreement possible. There would have been no agreement and no restored funding for CUNY without the campaign thousands of PSC members waged this year. Congratulations to all.
PSC Reaches Contract Deal with CUNY
New York—A tentative collective bargaining agreement has been reached between the Professional Staff Congress (PSC), the union representing CUNY faculty and professional staff, and the City University of New York (CUNY). The deal was announced today by PSC President Barbara Bowen and CUNY Chancellor James B. Milliken.
The proposed contract provides 10.41% in compounded salary increases over a period of slightly more than seven years, from October 20, 2010 through November 30, 2017. CUNY faculty and professional staff, who have worked for more than six years without a raise, will receive retroactive payments and a signing bonus.
Equally important, the contract enacts significant structural changes that will fortify working and learning conditions at CUNY.
