You will soon receive an important mailing from the PSC – please look for it!
The mailing contains a letter and brochure about the PSC-COPE program, the political-action arm of the PSC. Now more than ever, your support is needed to build the union’s political power to make sure that government, especially at the state and local levels, is responsive to our needs.
Please take the important step of deciding to contribute.
Why? Because contributing to PSC-COPE helps build the union’s political power to insure our collective future is a good one.
Here are a few things that PSC-COPE has helped to accomplish during the past year:
- We beat back an inferior pension tier and efforts to privatize CUNY/SUNY funding.
- We helped win job-saving federal stimulus funds and extension of unemployment benefits.
- We elected lawmakers who understand our message: “CUNY is the path to New York’s future.”
- In June we won restorations of funds for New York City support for CUNY, and won enhanced funding for CUNY community colleges during tough economic times!
That’s PSC-COPE at work: protecting our salaries, our benefits, our jobs, and our vision for a better CUNY, and working to benefit all New Yorkers. PSC-COPE isn’t just about winning elections. In the last few years, PSC members have achieved pension equity, TransitCheks – all made possible by PSC-COPE organizing.
PSC-COPE is our tool to organize to affect those decisions. The more contributors, the more of a voice we can have together.
Joining PSC-COPE is easy. Look for the mailing and please fill out the enclosed payroll deduction form – or request an enrollment form here.
Together, we can make our future at CUNY a good one.
