Letter from UFCT President Israel Kugler to Frederick Burkhardt: Removal of Department Chairmen at Kingsborough Community College

This letter from UFCT President Israel Kugler stemmed from the unprecedented decision of the CUNY governing board to remove all department chairmen from the bargaining unit at Kingsborough Community College in July 1971. Although the UFCT did not represent the full time faculty who served as chairs, (the rival Legislative Conference did), it strongly supported the principle of elected chairpersons. While the elections of chairmen were legally only a recommendation, the college president had previously overwhelmingly accepted them.
