What's Happening?

Adjuncts at CSI and throughout CUNY are uniting with graduate student employees, undergraduate students, and with like-minded full-time faculty and staff to press for full support for public higher education. That means a rollback of tuition and significantly increased funding to support adequate wages for all instruction (by part-time as well as full-time faculty) at CUNY.

At the Nov 12 Delegate Assembly, a coordinated action by graduate student employees and long-time adjuncts forced discussion of key adjunct demands for the next contract: pay equity, seniority, and workload flexibility (easing the 9/6 rule). This cellphone video captures a "rehearsal" by several adjuncts and grad students who arrived early.

Speaking of student-faculty alliance for free public higher education, the Nov 12 CSI participation in the nationwide Million Student March was on NY1, with one student and one faculty member interviewed: http://www.ny1.com/nyc/staten-island/news/2015/11/13/students-protest-increased-tuition-at-the-college-of-staten-island.html

Data (to be added soon) from the 2009 University Faculty Senate survey and the 2014 CSI Adjuncts Survey indicate that adjuncts need a significant salary increase as well as a system of job stability and security in order to do our job well.
