Our Bill Passed!
A message from President Bowen:
Thank you, PSC members! The bill on future funding for CUNY passed in the NYS Senate the evening of June 18. There is no doubt that the reason it moved out of committee and onto the Senate floor for a full vote was that the PSC, together with our allies, gave it a strong final push. You sent 6,407 messages to the Senate just in the past six days. And that effort was only the final phase of a legislative campaign that has spanned many months.
Has your department missed out on a promising new faculty recruit because of CUNY’s uncompetitive pay? Have talented colleagues left CUNY for higher paid positions or lower-cost cities? Are you thinking seriously about leaving because your CUNY salary hasn’t kept up with the City’s sky-high cost of living? What will it mean for your department if you go or if you lose another colleague? Answer these questions and share the rest of your story here. Anecdotal information collected via this form will be used to help the contract campaign. The web form is not anonymous (we need to be able to follow up), but the union won’t publish or share stories with personally identifying information without your permission.
