Mass Meeting for a Fair Contract.  “We are here tonight to call not just for a new contract at CUNY, but for a new kind of contract: one that provides the conditions we need to do our jobs, a contract that enables CUNY to fulfill its historic mission for the people of New York,” PSC President Dr. Barbara Bowen told the assembled crowd at a mass rally at Cooper Union's Great Hall on Tuesday, October 30th.  More.


Anne Friedman, VP for Community
Colleges, opens the rally.
