Building Community-CLT Partnerships
Annual CLT Unity Day
Friday, June 4, 2021
10 AM – 4 PM (ET)
Please join us on Friday, June 4th for a one-day virtual conference to learn about College Laboratory Technicians (CLTs), their issues, and concerns.
This year’s CLT Unity Day is meant for everyone in the PSC. It will be a chance to build cross-title solidarity, to learn about bargaining, to meet the new PSC leadership and to confront issues that affect all of us—like work place bullying, health and safety and college governance.
CLT Unity Day is open to all PSC members: CLTs, HEOs, full-time and adjunct faculty and everyone else! Join us online for all or part of the day to learn more about CLTs and the CLT Chapter. CUNY cannot operate without us, but many PSC members are unaware of who CLTs are and what we do. We want you to know us, and we want to get to know you!
This is the first time the CLT Chapter is hosting a Unity Day conference with officers of the PSC and key staff. It’s our goal to build relationships and community among our members and throughout the union. The day will be divided up into segments, so if you are busy, you can choose the session that you want to participate in. We hope that you do have the time to attend the entire day. It will be a day full of information.
