On Wednesday, April 24th, PSC President Barbara Bowen wrote a letter to adjuncts informing them that:
Adjunct health insurance through the PSC-CUNY Welfare Fund has been extended for a year and two months—through June 30, 2014. An agreement between the PSC and CUNY on the 14-month extension was reached today [4/24/13], and was supported by a vote by the Welfare Fund Board of Trustees.
"Rather than ask you to live in uncertainty any longer," Bowen noted, "the PSC worked with CUNY to negotiate an extension of the current adjunct health insurance program through the Welfare Fund."
"Coverage through the Welfare Fund is not a permanent solution," Bowen added, "and the union will continue to work with CUNY on a long-term structural solution [placing adjuncts on a public plan]."
