The contract is the primary source of your rights on the job. It covers a broad range of rights, benefits and working conditions: salaries, workload, leaves and holidays, due process rights, reassigned time for research, and health and pension benefits. Learn more about the contract and how to protect your rights.
The benefits PSC members receive—from healthcare and pension benefits to professional development grants to disability and death benefits—are paid for by contributions from our employer, CUNY. Those contributions are negotiated during bargaining as part of members’ compensation.
In addition, full-time employees receive a series of supplemental benefits through the PSC-CUNY Welfare Fund, ranging from dental care to optical benefits and more.
Finally, there are a wide range of supplemental benefits available through the PSC and it affiliates.
Over the past year and a half junior faculty committees have met at both the central union office and at individual colleges to strategize ways that they can improve their own working lives and that of other junior faculty at CUNY. Find out more.
