Spring 2024 Actions

February 29 Informational Picket on QC Campus

Join us Thursday 1/25 as we take action to reverse the layoffs and resist austerity!

If you can be there, RSVP here.

Instead of resisting CUNY’s unjustified demand for budget cuts, Queens College administration decided to lay off 26 full time Queens College faculty, just weeks before the semester! These sudden and cruel layoffs deeply hurt faculty’s livelihoods, and in some cases take away their healthcare benefits. The administration’s brutal conduct affected hundreds of students and instructors, and dramatically cut course offerings at the college. You can read more about the layoffs on our press page.

Join us on Thursday, January 25, to demand that Queens College reverse these outrageous layoffs:
At 9 AM meet us in the Music building to distribute flyers informing the Queens College community about these cuts!
At 12 PM meet us in front of Kiely Hall, to protest the layoffs and the budget cuts that destroy our college.

Can’t join in person? Send the administration a letter directly by signing here: https://psc-cuny.org/about-us/queens-college/tell-president-frank-wu-to-rehire-our-26-queens-colleagues/. Let’s flood their inboxes with letters demanding that these cuts be reversed.

Help us spread the word by sharing our open letter with friends, colleagues, and with your social media networks!
