PSC-CUNY Members, Students to CUNY Board Chair Bill Thompson: ‘Contract Now!’

Seventy-five CUNY Professional Staff Congress members and CUNY students rallied Friday morning outside the Wall Street investment bank where CUNY Board of Trustees Chair Bill Thompson serves as chief administrative officer.

The members' boisterous chants and sustained picket told Thompson, his colleagues, and Wall Street workers that they hold him accountable for CUNY management’s failure to settle a fair contract for PSC members. Hundreds of passersby took leaflets urging them to call Thompson at work and tweet at Chancellor Matos Rodríguez to demand that CUNY offer real raises, improve job security, and withdraw the proposed bylaw changes.
