Janus vs. AFSCME, a case designed to strip unions of their members, their treasuries and their power, is working its way through the courts. It is expected to come before the Supreme Court next year. The Janus case and the Gorsuch appointment are the culmination of a decades-long attack on unions and workers’ rights. The PSC is strong after years of contract and budget campaigns; we’re organizing in the workplace to strengthen every member’s connection and commitment to the union. Make a public commitment to support the PSC.
OPEN ENROLLMENT THROUGH JUNE 15
A message from Sharon Persinger, PSC Treasurer
I am writing to make sure you are aware of a new opportunity, available through the union, to enroll in a Catastrophe Major Medical Plan with no restrictions based on preexisting medical conditions. The 45-day enrollment period ends on June 15. This may be a one-time opportunity. I urge you to consider seriously whether this additional insurance to cover medical emergencies, available through our statewide affiliate NYSUT, is right for you.
Fourteen PSC chapters held elections in the spring of 2017. The chapters elected their local officers, delegates and alternates to the PSC Delegate Assembly, and representatives to the PSC-CUNY Welfare Fund Advisory Council. Most races were uncontested, though there were contested races at the Graduate Center and Hunter College. The election results were certified by the Elections Committee on May 8. The term of office for the newly elected candidates begins on May 22. Click here for a list of all newly elected chapter leaders and here for the vote counts of the contested elections.
