We're DC37 Union members and IT workers for CUNY (City University of New York) in NYC. The City University of New York is the public university system of New York City. It is the largest urban university system in the United States, comprising of 25 campuses: eleven senior colleges, seven community colleges, one undergraduate honors college, and seven post-graduate institutions.

CUNY has told us that they will eliminate our jobs by July due to NY State's enacted budget cuts. They have notified us that they will cut our hours from 32.5 hours to 21.5 hours beginning in July and layoffs looming. These cuts will have a severe impact on us and the communities and local economy we serve.  Click here to see how CUNY campus - The City College of NY’s (CCNY) $2 billion impact New York's economy.  

Please ask your NYC Council members (https://council.nyc.gov/districts Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (https://www.gillibrand.senate.gov/contact/email-me U.S. Senator Charles Schumer  (https://www.schumer.senate.gov/contact/email-chuck and elected leaders (https://nyassembly.gov/mem/ the following questions........ and ask the following

What are you doing to save our jobs and CUNY?

For the City Council - What are you doing to restore Mayor Bill de Blasio's cut to CUNY of over 50 million dollars?

For State Senators and Assembly Members - What are you doing to protect our jobs and to save CUNY from huge budget cuts?

For State officials - What will you do if Governor Andrew M. Cuomo's office enacts cuts empowered by recent state legislation?

CUNY serves a racially diverse student body. Our union Local 2627 reflects the population of NYC and these layoffs, if enacted would devastate our communities which are suffering the most during the COVID pandemic and the local economy.
