The next step in the PSC’s contract campaign is a mass rally and march on Tuesday, October 21, in mid-Manhattan, with members assembling at 5:30 pm at the Community Church of New York, 40 East 35th Street near Park Avenue South.
“We will update members on the latest developments in negotiations, then we will take our message to those in power with a demand for action,” said PSC President Barbara Bowen. “Our success depends on the number of people who make a commitment to come. We know from past experience that good contracts are won on the ground.”
The huge turnout at the union’s September 29 contract demonstration (see article at left) speaks for itself, Bowen said: “Our numbers are the best testimony to the intensity of our demand that the CUNY administration act now to resolve the contract.” To secure more progress, she said, more numbers are needed. “Every member who wants a raise, who wants a contract that is worthy of our work, should plan to be there.”
