An Update on Adjunct Health Insurance from President Bowen

I appreciate the patience adjuncts have shown as you wait to hear about the future of your health insurance benefit. I can understand how difficult it is to wait for information when your own healthcare is at stake.

The union is doing everything we can to reach an agreement quickly. We do not yet have an agreement, but we have made significant progress in our negotiations with CUNY. Health insurance is a complex subject, however, and the provision of the new benefit has involved extensive, detailed conversation.

The PSC's aim continues to be to provide for a health insurance benefit for eligible adjuncts without a break in coverage. I am confident that University management is also committed to reaching an agreement, and management has been working hard in partnership with us. Please be assured that we will share information the minute it is available.
