The PSC is partnering with NYSUT, United University Professions (UUP) and student organizations like NYPIRG and USS to organize meetings with lawmakers in Albany and City Hall about the need to increase funding for CUNY, expand financial aid and pass legislation that supports the university community.
Faculty, staff and students are the best advocates for the University because they speak from personal experience about the triumphs and challenges of working and learning at CUNY. That’s why we need you to sign up to join your colleagues and CUNY students at these spring actions:
With an 86 percent vote in favor and the union's highest-ever voter turnout on ratification, the PSC membership has ratified our contract. Congratulations, PSC members! My thanks to every member who voted and everyone who participated in a spirit of solidarity during the union-wide discussion about the contract and ratification. The high turnout and high percentage of "yes" votes shows that the PSC membership is engaged with the union and in strong support of the contract.
Of a total of 21,416 eligible voters, 15,976 votes were cast, a participation rate of 75 percent. 13,660 members, or 86 percent, voted "yes"; 2,316 voted "no."
We won this contract together, through building and exercising the power of the union. The 2017-2023 contract prioritized equity and is testament to the unity of our membership. Everyone gains when the salary floor for the lowest-paid is lifted.
