On February 12, 60 PSC members—full-time faculty, adjuncts, CLTs and HEOs—traveled to Albany urging legislators to fix the State’s broken funding model for CUNY and fund our contract. They were there as part of a statewide Higher Education Advocacy Day cosponsored by NYSUT, the PSC, and United University Professions.

The PSC’s legislative strategy is to press the Assembly and the new Senate majority to include the funding CUNY needs in their one-house budget resolutions, which are typically passed at the beginning of March and set the table for final budget talks with the governor.
But you don’t need to be in Albany to help win funding for a fair contract with raises for all and $7,000 per course for adjuncts. Our goal is to generate 10,000 messages from union members to their legislators before the April 1 State budget deadline. Click here to do your part.
