Late-Night Bus to Washington D.C., Sunday/Monday, February 25 - 26

As the Supreme Court prepares to hear the most dangerous anti-worker case in a generation, working people are taking a stand. Thousands of union members from across the state will take to the streets at 11 a.m. this Saturday, February 24 in Foley Square in Manhattan for a mass demonstration in defense of all working people. We need you in the PSC contingent!

Sign up here to join your PSC colleagues at Foley Square this Saturday. When you do, you will be taking a stand for your own union, your own rights, and for the rights—and needs—of all working people. Our power as workers has always come from mass action: Saturday will give us a chance to make that power visible. The Supreme Court may decide against us in the Janus v. AFSCME case, but it cannot strip us of the power we have when we take a stand together.

Join UFS Chair Katherine Conway, PSC chapter chairs Alia Tyner-Mullings (Guttman CC) and Luke Elliott-Negri (GC), adjunct faculty from CUNY's School of Professional Studies, and PSC President Barbara Bowen for a forum: "Faculty Governance Under Attack at CUNY" on Wednesday, February 7, from 6:00-8:00 p.m. The forum will examine the draft governance document for the CUNY School of Professional Studies--and the threat it represents to faculty governance throughout CUNY. We will also hear from faculty at Guttman Community College, who struggled to revise their governance document and ensure an active faculty role. Together we will probe the implications for academic freedom and professional autonomy at CUNY, and we will discuss what we can do together to protect academic integrity. Please come, invite your colleagues, and distribute the flyer.

Join us on Wednesday February 7, 6 - 8 pm in the Segal Theater at the CUNY Graduate Center, 34th St. and 5th Ave.
