PSC fights for justice as CUNY campuses reopen

The PSC has rallied against unsafe reopening. The Environmental Health and Safety Watchdogs have trained activists to do safety walk-throughs of work locations, and union officers are meeting faculty and staff at their campuses to talk to them about their experiences. Some campuses are doing better than others in terms of ensuring a safe work environment (in terms of COVID-19), and others are failing to follow basic CDC guidelines. All the while, the PSC is demanding that CUNY Central takes on a bigger leadership role in ensuring safety at CUNY campuses during an uncertain time. Below is a sampling of the all-out PSC mobilization across CUNY as campuses began reopening to faculty, staff and students returning for in-person instruction.
