Union Grievance Wins $1.7 Million for CUNY Adjuncts and Instructional Staff

May 30, 2024

More than 4,300 adjuncts and other instructional staff represented by the PSC will receive a combined payout of more than $1.7 million dollars under the terms of a new settlement agreement signed by President Davis on Wednesday, May 22. The settlement stems from college and CUNY-wide grievances filed by the union in June 2020 after CUNY failed to provide proper compensation for required online trainings provided by the colleges and CUNY Central in the Spring and Summer of 2020. The affected adjuncts and instructional staff who are party to the agreement were paid varying amounts at the time of the training, but those amounts were less than what CUNY was contractually obligated to pay. The settlement will bring the full payment for the online trainings up to $900 per worker, and CUNY will be required to pay each affected worker the difference between what they were paid and the agreed upon $900. Individual payouts will range from $6 to $800. The payment will appear as a line item on members’ paychecks. CUNY Payroll has not yet confirmed a payment date, but members should look out for the payment this summer.
