Action, February 1969

This edition of Action leads with the results of a recent CUNY-wide faculty vote regarding union representation. It also includes articles covering the UFCT's legislative efforts in Albany, ongoing threats to CUNY's budget, as well as book reviews and letters contributed by faculty from across the CUNY system.

was the monthly newspaper of the United Federation of College Teachers (UFCT), one of the two main organizations that advocated for the concerns of CUNY employees before the formation in 1972 of the Professional Staff Congress, the union that has since represented CUNY faculty and professional staff. During this period, Action was edited by Bill Friedheim, an outspoken professor at Borough of Manhattan Community College and one of the subjects of our oral history interview on radicalism at BMCC.
