Pension Lawsuit

May 21, 2023

The PSC is suing CUNY on behalf of our members [click here to read lawsuit] because the administration has failed to properly deduct and submit pension contributions for hundreds of PSC members to the city pension systems, leaving our members liable for make-up payments and interest that in some cases can amount to tens of thousands of dollars. PSC member Celia Sporer, professor of criminal justice at Queensborough Community College, tells her story in the 5/21/23 New York Daily News.

There are other pension failures as well. Some retirees are still waiting for their pensions to be credited with back pay from the 2010-2017 contract!

  • We want our members who have been affected made whole, to have the interest and their lost tax benefits covered, or their pensions fully credited.

  • We want the Court to order CUNY to modernize their systems—this can’t keep happening!

  • And we want the Court to put an independent auditor in place to identify members who are being affected and don’t know it.

If you’ve discovered a problem with your pension deductions, and you are not already in contact with the union, email Greg Duros in Contract Enforcement at [email protected].
