Double Think on Unity: Vote UFCT

This flier was created by the United Federation of College Teachers (UFCT) in January 1972 and was designed to appeal to voters in an upcoming collective bargaining election for CUNY instructional staff. The election sought to establish a single bargaining agent for CUNY staff, doing so by pitting the UFCT against its rival the Legislative Conference (LC). The flier advocates for the UFCT and criticizes their opponent's record.

CUNY administration, meanwhile, had hoped for three separate bargaining units in an attempt to divide full-time, part-time, and non-classroom staff. The election advertised on the flier, however, never took place as members of the two unions agreed in April 1972 to merge into the Professional Staff Congress (PSC).
