Mayor de Blasio’s Executive Budget would cut City funding to CUNY by $67 million. His plan would eliminate funding needed to fill empty staff lines when students are in desperate need of more mental health counseling and academic advising. It would cut funding for remediation & child care, for tutoring and service corps, and for food insecurity programs. Click here to learn more about the proposed cuts and the union’s City Budget Campaign.

PSC members are mobilizing to join CUNY Rising Alliance groups this Thursday, June 24 at 2 PM at a demonstration at City Hall to oppose the Mayor’s cuts.
