CUNY Adjunct Alert (February 1999)

This February 1998 CUNY Adjunct Alert newsletter responded to the Professional Staff Congress (PSC) Vice President Richard Boris's positions on adjunct labor at CUNY in relation to the recently ratified contract expressed in the December 1998 issue of The Clarion. Among other points of contention, it explained how adjunct health care coverage was inferior to  insurance for full-timers and how there was a lack of available information on adjunct professional development opportunities. It also included an article criticizing the Schmidt Commission for its alleged stance on the privatization of remedial courses.

CUNY Adjuncts Unite! (CAU), an independent coalition of CUNY part-timers founded in 1997, produced the CUNY Adjunct Alert newsletter. The Clarion is the newspaper of the PSC.
