Introduction to, and invitation to join, the PTU View

Dissatisfied with their lack of "representation" by the Professional Staff Congress (PSC), the Graduate Students' Union and Doctoral Students' Council founded the CUNY Part-Time Instructional and Research Staff Union in 1986. This letter outlined the group's grievances with the PSC and invited graduate stduent membership. The grievances enumerated included: pro-rated pay, equal pay for equal work, basic professional benefits, full rights to participate in the union, job security, and full faculty privileges.
