The Contract: The PSC has been working hard to settle a contract that is beneficial to the membership, one that can sustain us at a minimum living wage. All in attendance were encouraged to participate in speaking with local officials regarding their effort in pressuring Gov. Coumo to settle the contract with the PSC and CUNY. It was noted that the Chancellor and the Mayor are on our side but our enemies are in the State House.
Suggestion: It was suggested that a letter be sent to state representatives requesting their support in persuading the Governor to settle this contract. Volunteers in crafting the letter were: John Flateau, David Hatchett, Angela Eustace, and Raquel Bennett.
