Is Your Pension Secure? Find Out at City Tech Chapter’s Pension Workshop

Come have some pizza and learn if you’re being affected by CUNY’s failure to properly deduct and contribute to your pension. Employees are facing extensive problems with their pensions CUNY-wide, and the PSC has filed a lawsuit.  

This workshop is for everyone (not just those near retirement age), PT and FT, HEOs and CLTs, those with TRS and TIAA. Former chapter chair and pension committee member Bob Cermele and, Greg Douros, from PSC Contract Enforcement, will be there to explain the issues and answer your questions. Spread the word to others who might need this knowledge. If possible, bring copies of your pay statements to check for potential issues. 

City Tech Chapter 5/9 with Guest Speaker James Davis, PSC President

What are the make-or-break issues for you in the contract?
Pay Stagnation? Adjunct Job Security? Health and Safety on Campus? Lack of Basic Resources? HEO shortages? Attacks on shared governance?

Why Sing Out?
Early December is the time to influence Governor Hochul’s Executive Budget proposal for next year. It’s an opportunity to set the starting point of next year’s funding struggle.  

We’ll be singing out to affirm our progress toward #NewDeal4CUNY for free and fully funded education, to call for new investments in our students and communities, and to be part of the continuing tradition of song in labor and social movements. Join us!

Why Shout Out? 
Faculty and staff represented by PSC-CUNY have been working eight months with an expired contract. They’ve been bargaining since June, but the CUNY bosses still have not made an economic offer! The union is demanding a fair contract with real raises that supports justice and community at CUNY.
