Reasons Adjuncts Should Stay in the PSC

This October 21, 1986 letter, written on PSC letterhead and signed by Professional Staff Congress (PSC) Vice President Howard L. Jones, was sent to adjunct faculty. The letter stated that the "terms and conditions" of employment of adjuncts within the CUNY system exceeded national averages and emphasized recent contract improvements, which included employer-paid health insurance and tuition remission. It closed by arguing that a separate organization of adjuncts would compromise the “hard-fought gains won by the union for CUNY’s adjuncts.”
