Handwritten Letter Concerning Responsibilities of Membership in the Professional Staff Congress
Her concerns regarding striking were prescient as PSC would soon deadlock in contract negotiations with CUNY and vote to strike on October 1, 1973 should no agreement be reached. The letter writer's concern was one shared by many faculty as striking was illegal under the New York State Taylor Law of 1967 which dictated that strikes by public employees could lead to financial penalties on both the union and individual strikers. The question became moot, however, as the PSC and CUNY reached an agreement on a new contract in July 1973 several months before the planned strike.
