RE: Unemployment Compensation

This June 17, 1983, memo, sent to all adjunct members of the Professional Staff Congress (PSC), informed part-time faculty that they had a right to appeal all state unemployment compensation denials since 1978 based on a procedural violation. Despite being unable to offer assurance, the union urged adjuncts to return the verification forms and if they believed they had not received “reasonable assurance” for the fall semester to apply for unemployment benefits.
