Stand together with the PSC and with unions from across the state at the Working People’s Day of Action rally in Foley Square on Saturday, February 24 at 11 AM. The NYC rally, and events like it in cities big and small, will happen two days before the Supreme Court will hear arguments in Janus v. AFSCME, a case funded by wealthy interests who want to destroy unions like the PSC. They’re scheming to rig the system against working people, to end our power to work together for better pay and good benefits. But we’re standing up to defend our rights and freedoms. Join us. Let us know you’ll be there by filling out this form.
Get on the Bus to Albany Advocate with Students for More State Funding for CUNY
The PSC is partnering with NYSUT and United University Professions (UUP) and with student organizations like NYPIRG and USS to advocate in Albany for increased funding for public higher education. Dozens of PSC members have risen to the challenge and signed up to lobby for a fully funded CUNY with the public resources needed to add full-time faculty lines, increase adjuncts’ pay to $7,000 per course and expand academic advisement and support services for students. There are still seats available on the bus for the Student/Faculty/Staff Higher Ed Action Day on Wednesday, February 28. Email Tiffany Brown at Tbrown@pscmail.org to tell us you can join this one-day round trip to Albany with students on the buses leaving early from New York City.
For the Spring 2018 semester, teaching adjuncts are scheduled to be paid on eight successive pay dates at two-week intervals. At the senior colleges, the first pay date will be Feb. 15 and the last pay date will be May 24. At most community colleges, the first pay date will be Feb. 9 and the last pay date will be May 18. Kingsborough CC, LaGuardia CC and Guttman CC operate on a different academic calendar with different pay dates.
