NY PERB: Improper Practice Charge

This NY Public Employment Relations Board (PERB) “Improper Practice Charge,” filed in 1974 by David Allen of the Adjunct Faculty Association, alleged that the Professional Staff Congress (PSC) deliberately entered into an labor agreement that injured adjuncts. The charges included accepting “non-specific criteria” when discharging adjuncts, eliminating rehiring privileges, decreasing the workload to two courses, replacing a “semester hour” with “contact hour” and thereby reducing adjunct salaries. The PERB charge stated that “By these and other acts, the employee organization has violated its duty to represent all employees within the bargaining unit fairly. . . .”
