Response from PSC to Non-member's Letter Regarding Membership Responsibilities

In this response to the concerns of non-member Mary Jane Blanpied about striking, a representative from the Professional Staff Congress (PSC) makes clear that ”no such action could be taken without a full membership referendum.” Such a vote would be taken in mid-1973 with union members approving a strike following a prolonged deadlock with CUNY administration over contract negotiations. However, a July 1973 agreement between the two parties would render the planned October 1st strike unnecessary.
