UFCT University Reporter: "Legislative Memorandum: Support Support Support"

This February 1968 memorandum was issued to the membership of the United Federation of College Teachers (UFCT) by its president. Israel Kugler calls for support for legislation that would equalize the salaries and working conditions of senior (four-year) and community college faculty at CUNY.

A year later in 1969 CUNY negotiated two contracts, one with the UFCT for part time faculty and staff plus lecturers, and a second with the Legislative Conference (LC) for the full time faculty and staff. The LC contract did manage to equalize salaries and promotional opportunities between senior and community colleges, but did not equalize workload, which remained higher in the community colleges.
