Today CUNY filed a petition with the state Public Employment Relations Board seeking mediation to help resolve labor negotiations with our faculty and non-teaching instructional staff that have gone on for too long. This step, taken in consultation with our Board of Trustees, is intended to facilitate an agreement on a fair contract with the union, the University’s highest priority. CUNY is a great institution because of the thousands of talented faculty and staff who serve our students and the city and state so well. We hope this step will help us reach a settlement.
