Pressure. Pressure is what we need to win a just contract, pressure on the CUNY administration and pressure on the City and State officials who must reach agreement on the economic framework for our contract. That’s why it’s critical that you turn out with your colleagues for the mass rally and march starting at 5:30 PM, Tuesday, October 21 at the Community Church of New York (40 E 35th St.). Please download this flier to post on campus and share with your colleagues and RSVP here, if you haven’t already. Come for a report on the latest developments in the contract negotiations and help take our demand for action to those in power.
CUNY contracts are negotiated at the bargaining table, but won on the ground. Our success depends on the number of people who make a commitment to come to actions such as this. If you agree that CUNY needs a raise, that we need a raise and a fair contract, please commit to being at the rally/march, and mobilize your co-workers to join you.
This November, voters will be electing—or re-electing—all our state’s top officials and legislators, and we have the opportunity to win a Democratic majority in the NYS Senate. Doing so would help end the stalemate that has left issues like paid family leave, raising the minimum wage and passing the NYS Dream Act in limbo.

CUNY’s phased retirement pilot program is a negotiated benefit that allows Optional Retirement Program participants who meet eligibility requirements to elect a reduced workload and reduced salary for up to three years immediately preceding retirement. If you are considering retiring and are a member of the Optional Retirement Program, the deadline to file for phased retirement for academic year of 2015-16 has changed from October 1, 2014 to November 15, 2014. Details about the plan are available in the letter of agreement about the program. Click here for the faculty application and here for the staff application.
