Contract Demonstration, Thurs., Sept. 27, 4-6PM
On Thursday, September 27 PSC members will gather for a contract demonstration at the NY Stock Exchange (corner of Wall St. and Broad St.). We will march through the Financial District to demand a fair contract and to protest the economic inequality that denies resources to CUNY students and those who work with them. The way the PSC has won contracts in the past is through public, collective action and resistance. That’s why everyone who cares about a raise and a contract needs to be there. Our union is stronger than ever – it’s time to make that strength felt. Click here to let us know you’ll be there.
