Multi-Union Efforts in New York
Newfield, Marcia
Academe, v94 n6 p40-41 Nov-Dec 2008
The Professional Staff Congress (PSC), the union for twenty-two thousand faculty and staff members at the City University of New York (CUNY), has been successful at gaining New York State aid for tuition remission for doctoral students and health insurance for graduate student employees, increasing budget allotments to CUNY, and obtaining transit checks, which allow all faculty and staff to pay for public-transportation cards with pre-tax money. Since spring 2001, the PSC has been lobbying the New York State legislature for unemployment and short-term disability insurance for adjuncts and for higher budget allocations for CUNY that include conversion lines for adjuncts. This article describes the various efforts of PSC to advance the causes of adjunct faculty.
