The Professional Staff Congress, the union representing faculty and staff at the City University of New York, stands in solidarity with the almost 1700 striking adjunct faculty at the New School and their union, A.C.T.-U.A.W. Local 7902. Adjunct faculty are 87% of the New School’s instructional staff. The university cannot operate without them and should meet their demands to end the strike. Adjuncts at the New School deserve higher pay and pay for the work they do outside of class, better health insurance, real job security, and other gains. When the administration fails to meet the basic needs of its faculty, the students and faculty suffer. Facing rising inflation after four years without a raise, our colleagues at the New School are organized and ready to fight. The PSC is proud to stand with them and urges all CUNY adjuncts to sign the No Scab pledge.
