Join Barbara Bowen at major City rally Wednesday!

Dear PSC Member,

We constantly hear about the “budget crisis” in New York City, but the truth is that the City has a surplus of more than $3 billion.  Mayor Bloomberg wants to apply that surplus to next year’s budget, and is pursuing an agenda of budget cuts this year designed to shrink public services and undermine public employees.  The mayor’s budget calls for hundreds of layoffs of City workers, drastic cuts to CUNY, and reduced funds for labor contracts.

The City labor movement is fighting back—and I’m inviting you to be part of that effort.  Please do everything you can to join me at the massive rally this Wednesday, June 16 at City Hall.  CUNY faculty, staff and students will march to the rally from the PSC office, at 61 Broadway, leaving at 3:30.  March with us if you can, or join us at the rally from 4-6pm.  Look for PSC signs on the corner of Broadway and Chambers Street.  Bring your colleagues, your friends—anyone who believes that the city is richer, not poorer, for the presence of the public sector.

The larger the turnout from the PSC, the stronger our message to the City not to cut CUNY, not to use the present economic conditions as an excuse to dismantle public services.  I look forward to seeing you there:

Wednesday, June 16
Leave the PSC Office, 61 Broadway, at 3:30
Or join us at City Hall, Broadway and Chambers Street from 4-6pm.

For more information, contact Rob Murray at the PSC: rmurray@pscmail.org, 212-354-1252.

In solidarity,
Barbara Bowen
President, PSC
