A message from PSC-CUNY (the CUNY faculty and staff union):
The One New York coalition, of which the PSC is a member, is sponsoring a rally at City Hall on March 5 at 4 pm to make visible New Yorkers’ – and the NYC labor movement’s – support for fair share tax reform as the best and smartest way to deal with the City and State budget problems. The PSC supports the One New York proposal to close the budget gap by asking New Yorkers who make more than $250,000 a year to pay a bit more.
