Action, November 1968

This edition of Action announces the upcoming election of a "collective bargaining agent" for CUNY faculty. The faculty are set to choose between the UFCT (the publisher of this paper), the Legislative Conference, or no organizational representation at all. This issue also includes editorials regarding campus overcrowding and faculty housing, a book review, and letters to the editor.

was the monthly newspaper of the United Federation of College Teachers, 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.
