PSC/CUNY Holds Around-the-Clock Online Action

The Professional Staff Congress kicked off their Fall campaign to Save Lives, Save Jobs, Save CUNY with an around-the-clock online action. The marathon day—called PSC Demands Justice—started at 8 AM Wednesday, August 26, the first day of classes for most CUNY colleges. Video from the day is available on the PSC Facebook (part 1part 2, and part 3). The schedule featured a mix of live and pre-recorded events organized around the union’s 10 demands, including sessions on increasing class sizes, restoring jobs and health insurance for 2900 laid-off CUNY adjuncts, and fighting tuition hikes and fee increases for students. CUNY Rising Alliance joined with allies and legislators to demand a New Deal for CUNY and the Budget Justice Coalition hosted a roundtable about increasing taxes on the rich. Member-written op-eds were read throughout the day and the greatest hits of recent PSC member actions played in the over-night hours.
