Clarion Masthead

April 2014

Knowledge is power – and if you don’t know your rights, you’re putting yourself in a weakened position. On April 22 and 23 the PSC is holding a special, two-day contract enforcement training session, highlighting basic contract rights and giving members hands-on experience on how to deal with contract violations.

PSC is fighting for a 'fair and a progressive contract' that may be negotiated in the coming months. PSC President Barbara Bowen says now is the time to build a united and collective voice for the best possible contract.

PSC members testified at the City Council's first hearing on CUNY's Pathways curriculum. Reduced lab instruction in basic science classes, scaling back foreign language requirements and a lowest-common denominator approach to general education are just some of the effects that faculty and staff described.

Inspired by action at another CUNY campus, union members at Bronx EOC take collective measures to address abysmal facility conditions.

In an historic vote, Medgar Evers College Council voted to not authorize a ROTC program at its campus. Currently there are Army ROTC programs at City College, York and Medgar Evers. The MEC program will close after this semester.
