PSC-CUNY President Finally Says the S Word

Will CUNY workers finally go on strike? With public school teachers in New York City threatening a strike of their own, PSC leadership implied last week that a possible strike is on the table. With 3,000 part time workers laid off this summer and more cuts expected, and racial capitalism ravaging the CUNY community under the pandemic, a strike is long overdue.

The Case for a National Teachers’ Strike

The ruling class and their representatives want schools open at any cost to protect their profits. We need a national teachers’ strike to defend ourselves, fight back, and link our struggle to the wider movement against the cops and beyond.

CUNY Rank and File Push for Strike Authorization Vote After Mass Layoffs

PSC CUNY has filed a lawsuit in response to the university’s announcement that it is laying off over 2,800 adjunct faculty and staff. However, the only way to stop the layoffs is to prepare for a strike in the fall, and PSC members are calling on union leadership to mobilize for this action. 

Police Abolition, Self Defense, and Self Organization

Now that the movement has put the very existence of the police on the table, socialists everywhere must begin to think about the forms of self organization needed to further develop and strengthen the struggle in order to eventually build a broader confrontation with capital and the state.
