April Pay Dates for Lump Sum Raises for Assistants to HEO & Lecturers

Apr 13, 2021

In February, PSC members waged an intense two-week campaign in response to the CUNY chancellor’s decision to ignore the contract and refuse to pay equity increases to 2,500 colleagues in lower-paid full-time positions—Assistant to HEO and Lecturer titles. Hours before a planned demonstration in front of his suburban home, Chancellor Matos Rodríguez reversed his decision and signed an agreement with the union for payment of the increases as lump sums instead of as raises spread over the course of a year. The agreement required CUNY to expedite their request for payment of the increases by the City and State so that members could receive the money as soon as possible.

CUNY has informed the PSC that both the $1,000 lump sum payment to Assistants to HEO and the $1,500 lump sum payment to faculty in full-time Lecturer titles (which include CLIP and CUNY Start Instructors) will be paid on the pay dates of 4/22/21 for senior college employees and 4/30/21 for community college employees.
