Manfred Phillip, Chapter Grievance Officer and former chair of the UFS, making a point at the Lehman College meeting, 3/7/11.

When PSC members mobilize we have a real impact, even in an era of budget shortfalls and attacks on public workers. That’s true whether we are talking about City and State budget process or our contract negotiations. As we come to the bargaining table to negotiate a new contract with the University, the political and economic conditions that we face will no doubt influence our demands and the demands of management. That is why the PSC officers and the negotiating team are organizing special meetings at every chapter this semester linking the budget and contract campaigns.

PSC Testimony on Governor's Executive Budget

The Governor’s budget would compound three years of consecutive cuts to the City University of New York (CUNY) reducing student access and undermining academic quality throughout the university, according to the PSC in testimony before a joint legislative hearing on the Executive Budget.

Barbara Bowen, president of PSC, urged legislators to pursue revenue measures that would help balance the state budget without targeting the most vulnerable New Yorkers.

Committee of 1000

Imagine a committee with only one goal – to improve your life at work – with an agenda developed by the faculty and staff (not the college president or the chancellor’s office), with only one meeting per semester and hundreds of members to share the work, and with a serious chance of wielding power within the University and beyond – wouldn’t you want to be part of it? That’s what we are asking you to do: join the Committee of 1000.
