Clarion Masthead

December 2020

CUNY Chancellor Félix V. Matos Rodríguez, above, citing budget constraints, decided to delay the union’s contractual raises in November.

Since March, the union has fought dozens of battles to protect members and students in the wake of the pandemic. Clarion looks back.

At a tense City Council hearing, lawmakers and adjuncts confronted the CUNY administration’s layoffs of thousands of adjunct workers this year.

The CUNY Rising Alliance along with the PSC and its allies move forward with bold legislation.

PSC members joined student activists to call on CUNY to increase the number of mental health counselors. CUNY, they said, is dangerously low on staff.
