Cuny Contract Agreement
The agreement is indeed a massive compromise on the most pressing issue for many members of the union: equal pay for auxiliary faculties. This is the third in a series of short messages that provide accurate information on an aspect of the proposed contract. The introduction of uniform wage rates for each secondary security is a significant change and it is not surprising that there has been some confusion as to how this would work. This message aims to clarify the new structure. 1. The largest increase for the faculty of Adjunct will begin almost immediately when the treaty is ratified; Supplements don`t have to wait until last year. Starting the next semester, each addition will see a significant increase by gradually providing tools for more hours than they actually work. Supplements are paid for office hours at their full hourly rate. As a result, the minimum wage for a rate of three loans, currently $3,222, will immediately increase to $4,469, an increase of 39%. This is the second in a series of short messages intended to provide accurate information about the proposed contract.
Many members had questions about retroactive salary increases or additional payments. The counterpayment is the difference between what you actually paid and what you would have paid if the new higher contractual rates had been in effect at the time your paycheck was issued. If the proposed contract is ratified, you will be entitled to a refund if you have been on the CuNY payroll in a position defended by the CSP since October 1, 2018. This is the date of the first 2% increase in the proposed contract. A second increase of 2% would be effective on 31 October 2019. CUNY Struggle, the tier and file caucus that launched the 7KOS movement, issued a detailed and damning indictment of the proposed treaty changes, which criticizes, among other things, the fact that even full-time faculties will likely see their expected salaries lose value over the duration of the proposed contract. This is mainly due to the fact that wage increases in all areas are only retroactive for one of two years in which members did not have a new contract and probably will not even keep pace with inflation.
