Pledge your commitment to vote "yes" on strike authorization. Please consider this pledge carefully and add your name. Give the union the power we need. By signing, you pledge that you will vote "yes"--and indicate that you are prepared, if necessary, to join a strike or other job action. As the list of names grows, we will make the names public. The more signatures we gather, the stronger our message will be: the PSC means what we say when we refuse to accept substandard pay and conditions at CUNY.
It is perfectly legal for the union to take a strike authorization vote and for you to pledge that you will vote "yes." While the union might easily get a strong "yes" vote if we were to hold the vote today, the PSC is committed to conducting the vote in a way that allows for maximum democratic participation, thoughtful decision-making, and the development of the solidarity a decision to strike would require. That process takes time. Already hundreds of member-to-member conversations about the strike authorization vote have begun. The vote will be conducted early in the spring semester, after all the colleges have resumed classes in early March.
