CAMPAIGN OF OUTRAGE

How cheap can you be? Five colleges have been short-changing adjuncts for years -- paying them less than 15 weeks or the 45 hours for the semester.  Below are photos from campus protests (May 21-31,2007) at the five campuses plus two photos of "Turkey Awards" presented at Baruch College and Bronx CC Thanksgiving week 2007.  (UPDATE.  In mid-July, 2009, the PSC and CUNY agreed that, effective with the Fall 2009 semester, teaching adjuncts across CUNY will be paid the same amount in the last week of the semester as they are for all the other weeks. Adjuncts, with support from full-time faculty and staff, mounted a PSC “Campaign of Outrage” targeting the five colleges that did not consistently follow this practice: Baruch, College of Staten Island, and Bronx, Kingsborough and Queensborough Community Colleges.)

Turkey Awards/ Thanksgiving Week 2007

In the ongoing effort to shame five CUNY colleges into abandoning their practice of not paying adjuncts fully for the 15th week of the semester, PSC activists this holiday season visited the presidents’ offices at Baruch and Bronx Community Colleges. Dressed in a turkey suit and armed with cute plush stuffed turkeys to present to the presidents—both gimmicks meant to convey the message “don’t be a turkey, pay adjuncts for the work they do”—organizers and members were met by security administrators at Baruch, who accepted the plush turkey, and office workers at Bronx, who refused the gift. Afterwards they handed out flyers on both campuses to educate students about the practice of paying adjuncts only for any proctoring they do during finals week, not for the teaching they do.  (Click here for article in the Baruch College student newspaper, the Ticker.)
