PSC workload survey


The union is sending out a workload survey for college laboratory technicians and higher education officers. The CLT and HEO chapters are asking their members to fill out the survey in order to address the numerous issues facing PSC’s members in professional staff titles.

Jeanette Batiz, the CLT chapter chair, said that “the way the contract is written doesn’t really protect the CLTs when it comes to workload, the language is really open.”

One problem that CLTs have, Batiz said, is that when CLTs leave the job, the college administration doesn’t replace them. “A CLT retires or leaves, then you end up doing their job and your job, you can’t expect us to do two and three jobs,” she said.

Batiz encouraged CLTs to fill out the workload survey in hopes that the findings will help the PSC at the bargaining table against the CUNY administration. “[The PSC] can bargain to put language in there to protect us.”


Rulisa Galloway-Perry, the PSC co-chair for HEOs, said, “On some of our campuses, HEOs are feeling overwhelmed and stressed out as they are now doing the jobs of their colleagues who retired or left for jobs outside of CUNY. It is very important for all HEOs to fill out the workload survey that PSC will be sending out soon.  We need to hear your personal stories of HEOs doing the jobs of vacant positions of staff they supervise or of their supervisor due to hiring freezes on some of our campuses.”

She added, “I implore all HEOs to participate in upcoming bargaining campaign actions, press conferences, and legislative work with our elected officials. The more HEOs elected officials see in front of them in their legislative offices or in front of the Board of Trustees business office with disruptive signs will force them to fight with us for a fair contract.”
