NYSTA-UTNY Merger Agreement
The significance of this merger was that at CUNY, each of the competing unions was previously affiliated with a different group: the Legislative Conference (LC) with the NEA and the United Federation of College Teachers (UFCT) with the AFT. As the two statewide unions moved toward their merger, they placed increasing pressure on their affiliates in CUNY to do the same. The leaders of the LC and the UFCT agreed to merger at about the same time as the statewide unions merged. The members of the two CUNY unions quickly approved the merger in a referendum, and the PSC was officially formed on April 14, 1972.
