Message from the Chapter Co-Chair 10/3/2023

Emailed to all members on October 3, 2023

Dear Colleagues,

It was good to see many John Jay members names and faces at the PSC Town Hall meeting about our negotiations with management for a strong new contract last Thursday.

We’ll bring forth the local John Jay issues at our Chapter Meeting; we moved it to the next Wednesday, 10/11, please register now. A takeaway from the Town Hall is that we can build our power best by coming together visibly –  the week of 10/16 is the Manhattan Action Week  for Borough-wide activism.  Look for the sign up email  soon.   As a midtown CUNY campus, with a good size faculty that stands for justice, John Jay needs to be visible.

The Campaign Pledge Card is your ticket to showing up when it matters.  People notice when John Jay is in the house.

The next orientation session so you can be present for future bargaining session is Thursday night at 6:30.  Register here.

Please plan to come to the CUNY Board of Trustees meeting on October 16. It’s going to be at City College. Even if you cannot travel up with us, you can testify at this hearing and join in making signs for those of us who go.  John Jay needs to have 10 members come in person, including five people who have never come or spoken at all.  The trustees need to know we’re serious about real raises and our other demands.

I hope you have figured out if the Catastrophic Major Medical is for you, because tomorrow, the 11th and the 12th are the last information sessions; there’s no telling how many years the window for enrolling will close for on 10/13.  (It is not long-term care, but it looks to me like one benefit it has is 240 weeks of 25 hours of home health care benefit.)

In Solidarity,

Zabby Hovey, Co-Chair John Jay Chapter, PSC
