Cuny Workload Settlement Agreement

16. September 2021    

For full-time faculties, the fall and spring semesters as well as the winter semester are included in the calculation of annual working hours. In addition, in accordance with the work agreement between PSC and CUNY of December 8, 2017, the annual workload of senior and community colleges will be reduced by three hours of contact. The reduction will be achieved gradually over a period of three years, with one contact hour per year from AY 2018-2019 (autumn 2018). Therefore, in the AY 2020-2021 (from autumn 2020), the annual workload for professors, associate professors, assistant professors, renowned professors and clinical professors in senior colleges will be 6 p.m. Teachers have an annual workload of 24 hours. For faculties that have replacement dates in these titles, the annual workload is three hours higher. In accordance with the Workload Settlement Agreement, Annex A of the PSC-CUNY contract, faculties with a teaching deficit or surplus in a given year may process this workload on average over a three-year period. (d) contrary to what is provided for in Article 6 and Article 15.1(d), (e) and (f) of the collective agreement, the determination of the adaptation and allocation of time reassigned remains with the university, both as regards the amount of time reassigned and the identity of each member of the teaching staff to whom that time is granted; I left it. ________________________________________18In Memorandum of Understanding of June 16, 2016, the University and the Professional Staff Congress (PSC) set the common goal of reducing the annual contact hours for full-time teachers of teaching staff by three (3) hours of contact. On December 1, 2017, the parties agreed on an implementation plan for the three (3) reductions in teaching contact hours. 2.*The annual contact time for teaching** is as follows: the term „Undergraduate Teaching Contact Hour Hourload“ includes the time allocated to the person and authorized at the university: this contract provides for the possibility for postgraduate staff to extend individual postgraduate aid from five to seven years, but such extensions are not guaranteed and there is no mechanism, to enforce them. Similarly, the language relating to the provision of health insurance for unfunded doctoral students only set aside funding and forms a committee to discuss the issue. In the meantime, the MOA is silent about the administration`s practice of awarding additional work to PhD students and using their scholarships as compensation to circumvent contractual restrictions at work.

Before negotiating, 600 students were asked about their contractual demands and the number one of the claims amounted to 7,000 $US. This was not won on behalf of the account. Teacher appointments are subject to contractual restrictions in accordance with section 15.2 of the PSC-CUNY collective agreement and have academic restrictions during summer semesters. . . .
