We need to continue to push City Council members, State lawmakers and borough presidents to support funding for a new PSC-CUNY contract. The most effective thing you can do to make this happen is to join other PSC members in local meetings with elected representatives. The deadline for the City budget is the end of June, and Albany can still pass a pay bill to fund our contract.
Targeted lobbying had an impact this spring when PSC activists got dozens of State lawmakers to sign on to a letter supporting funding for a contract settlement. More needs to be done. Contact the PSC’s Amanda Magalhaes (email@example.com or 212-354-1252) to join a visit to the elected official who represents you or your college. These meetings can make a difference.
