MCC Strike Committee Bulletin #1

The 1976 contract negotiations between the Professional Staff Congress (PSC) and the university occurred in the midst of the city's mid-1970s fiscal crisis. Radicals at Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) formed a strike committee in order to urge the PSC to adopt a broader and more militant stance in the face of what they described as "an attack on higher education at CUNY." This bulletin details the extent of the budget cuts at BMCC and describes the committee's activities to date. In the end, no strike occurred.
