MISSION

The Professional Staff Congress is the union that represents more than 20,000 faculty and staff at the City University of New York (CUNY).  It is dedicated to advancing the professional lives of its members, enhancing their terms and conditions of employment, and maintaining the strength of the nation's largest, oldest and most visible urban public university.

In the past decade, unions have become increasingly critical to professional workers and higher education as pressure builds to corporatize the university and allow market forces rather than professional judgement to determine academic policy.  With its long history and strong affiliations, the PSC is a forceful advocate for the professional conditions that allow its members to offer a serious education to all New Yorkers.

The union negotiates, administers and enforces collective bargaining agreements; protects the rights of staff through the grievance and arbitration process; engages in political activity on behalf of CUNY and its staff and students; and advocates for the interests of the instructional staff in its various forums.  It also provides benefits and services to its members through such related organizations as the PSC/CUNY Welfare fund and New York State United Teachers (NYSUT).


"Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are men who want crops without plowing the ground.  They want rain without thunder and lightning.  They want the ocean without the roar of its mighty waters.  The struggle may be a moral one, or it may be a physical one, or it may be both moral and physical, but it must be a struggle.  Power concedes nothing without a demand.  It never has and it never will."

Frederick Douglass in a speech in Rochester, NY, 1857.
