Wake-up Call for Chancellor Milliken

Event Date: 
Thu, 10/01/2015 - 08:00 to 09:30

No Contract for Five Years. No Raises for Six.
No more excuses!

On the morning of Thursday, October 1, the day of the first CUNY Board meeting of the year, PSC members and allies will deliver a "wake-up call" to Chancellor Milliken at his Manhattan apartment, where CUNY pays his rent of $19,500 a month.

Why? Because Chancellor Milliken has failed to deliver a contract and has failed to counter effectively the austerity campaign against CUNY.

Convene at 7:30 am at 215 East 68th Street (between 2nd and 3rd). Rally at 8 am.

Chancellor's residence

#Fightfor$15 News Con & Wage Board Hearing

Event Date: 
Mon, 06/15/2015 - 08:30 to 11:45

Governor Andrew Cuomo has convened a three-person Wage Board to decide on a pay raise for hundreds of thousands of fast-food workers across New York State. On Monday, June 15, Wage Board members will hear testimony from workers and business interests. PSC members will be there as well, at a rally/news conference outside the hearing planned for 9:00 AM on the morning of the 15th.

The hearing will begin at 10 AM and is expected to last as long as it takes for everyone who is pre-registered to deliver their testimony. Here is a flier.

This move by the governor, who has proposed a minimum wage of $11.50 in NYC ($10.50 elsewhere), is happening because fast-food workers and unions throughout the state have organized and struck and campaigned relentlessly for $15 an hour and the right to form a union. Governor Cuomo has not yet called for a $15 per hour wage, the wage fast-food workers need to support themselves and their families, but the Wage Board has the power to make it so. What happens next is up to all of us.
