This is the full text of the merger agreement between the Legislative Conference (LC) and the United Federation of College Teachers (UFCT). The agreement was approved by the governing board of each organization, and then by the membership of each union; it took effect on April 14, 1972 with the new union called the Professional Staff Congress/CUNY (PSC). The groups had previously competed with one another as each was guided by a different philosophy and represented different members of staff and faculty across CUNY campuses. While their merging ultimately allowed the leaders of both to better focus their efforts on the needs of union members, competition between the two sides still remained in the early years of the PSC.
