Eligible Adjuncts! Avoid a Lapse in Coverage; Sign Up For Health Insurance by This Friday, Sept. 19.
The Sept. 19 enrollment deadline for CUNY’s new adjunct health insurance program is rapidly approaching. Beginning Oct. 1, 2014, the University Benefits Office will be responsible for providing health insurance through the NYC Employee Health Benefits Program to all eligible CUNY adjuncts. To avoid a lapse in coverage, eligible adjuncts—including those now receiving health insurance through the PSC/CUNY Welfare Fund—must enroll in the program via their College Benefits Officer no later than this Friday, Sept. 19, 2014. Here is a link to the University Benefits Office website where forms and further information are posted.
We have waited long enough for the CUNY Board of Trustees to put an economic offer on the table. It's time to demonstrate to the Board and the University Administration that we need a good contract now.
On Monday, September 29, the union will organize a mass demonstration to deliver a simple message to the Board of Trustees and Chancellor Milliken: CUNY Needs a Raise! We will assemble at 3:30 PM on Monday, September 29, at Baruch College Vertical Campus, where the CUNY Board meets. If a good contract is important to you, then you should be there. Fill out this form to confirm that you will join us.
The Island President –Fri., Sept. 19, 6 PM
This year’s Labor Goes to the Movies film series presents a group of films that take the threat of apocalypse as their premise. The threat of global climate change has given apocalyptic scenarios more mainstream girth, but filmmakers have been documenting and imagining man-made end times for years. The series begins with a screening of The Island President (2011, US, Jon Shenk), a documentary that follows President Mohammed Nasheem of the Maldives, the lowest-lying country on the planet, as he fights to slow sea level rise by pushing for the implementation of global CO2 emissions limits. The film highlights the events in Copenhagen during the 2009 U.N. climate summit, with footage shot both inside the negotiations and outside in the streets. It offers an important look at a largely unknown island nation experiencing the mortal threat of inundation consequent to global warming. Doors open at 6 PM in the PSC Union Hall on Friday, Sept. 19. A discussion will follow the film. Light refreshments provided. Click here to view a trailer.
