RF Workers to Top Execs: Don’t Be a Grinch

The Grinch joined CUNY Research Foundation employees outside the RF Directors’ meeting.

Research Foundation workers from three CUNY campuses and their supporters look on as the Grinch joins their December 22 protest outside a meeting of the RF Board of Directors. They were demanding that RF reach a fair first contract with 700 workers at LaGuardia, City Tech and the Graduate Center after years of negotiations.

“That was great,” said one union activist of the Grinch’s picket-line appearance. “He’s living proof anybody can change their hard-hearted ways, even top executives at the Research Foundation.”


The union has reached tentative agreement on a number of non-economic provisions with RF management, which has also agreed to the union’s health insurance co-premium proposal that would restrict annual increases to no more than 2% per year. However, the two sides remain apart on several economic issues, including wages.
