Some of New York’s most prominent labor leaders have written to Governor Hochul, urging her to fully fund CUNY’s budget needs and support the New Deal for CUNY legislation. Vincent Alvarez, president of the NYC Central Labor Council, Stuart Appelbaum, president of the Retail, Wholesale and Department Store Union (RWDSU), Kyle Bragg, president of 32BJ SEIU, Henry Garrido, executive director of District Council 37, and leaders of eight other unions and labor organizations signed the letter. “This year, with a relatively modest commitment from the state,” they wrote, “we can reverse decades of racism and classism, and make CUNY the national paradigm of public, urban higher education that it once was.”
