CUNY is gearing up to comply with the PESH standard on workplace violence prevention. This standard involves union participation in identifying potentially dangerous areas on campus. Our mini workshop will help you and your campus committees kickstart the process so that you can walk around with campus advisory teams and identify problem areas. Please let us know if you can attend: email@example.com
On Wednesday, January 26th the PSC bargaining team met with CUNY management to begin negotiating a new successor agreement to the contract that expired on October 19, 2010.
CUNY and all other public sector employers were required to enact a new Workplace Violence Prevention policy and program by August of 2009. The Watchdog committee at Queens College (which is made up of all the unions on that campus) filed a complaint with PESH alleging that the college was not in compliance with the standard. When a PESH inspector came to the campus, he agreed and then dug deeper.
We hope that you find the new site easier to navigate, fuller in content and more engaging. We have worked hard to ensure that it reflects the depth and breadth of the work of the union and the diversity of its chapters, committees and members.
Meetings will be scheduled across all 5 boroughs with NYS Assembly Members and Senators. All members are welcome. Join us.
