Wake Up Call for Chancellor Milliken—Thurs., Oct. 1

PSC members and allies will deliver a “wake-up call” to Chancellor Milliken at his CUNY-funded, $19,500-a-month Manhattan apartment on the morning of Thursday, October 1. We need you there at the protest outside the chancellor’s building (East 68th Street & 2nd Ave.) from 8:00-9:00 AM to demand a fair contract and a raise for all CUNY faculty and professional staff. Register here to let us know we can count on you. Here’s a flier you can download and share with colleagues.

Emergency Contract Campaign Chapter Meetings Continue this Week

Chapters have been meeting to plan the escalation of the campaign for a new PSC-CUNY contract. Check the online calendar for information about remaining dates. At the meetings we’re developing mobilization plans for the Wake-up Call for Chancellor Milliken (October 1) and creating local “Teach CUNY” curricula to engage students more in the campaign (most events October 19-30). Also on the agenda: movement toward a Disruptive Mass Action in early November and a Mass Meeting of the PSC on November 19. Come to a meeting and help make the plan your own. If you haven’t yet, register here to let us know we can count on you in the contract fight.
