Thank you for everyone who volunteered for the Verizon Strike Solidarity picketing that our chapter, the Adjunct Project, and CUNY Struggle engaged in. Verizon workers repeatedly mentioned how much the solidarity meant to them. You can read the New York Times write-up on the settlement here.
The Graduate Center PSC Chapter, the CUNY Adjunct Project, and CUNY Struggle are adopting a Verizon store, the one at Broadway and 34th, for the duration of the Verizon strike! What does that mean? We need members to come walk the picket line with striking Verizon workers in a show of solidarity!
Please consider volunteering for one or more days to join the picket. Our chapter will be out Mondays and Wednesdays, from 5:30-9pm. You can sign-up to let us know what dates you will be coming here at our Eventbrite page. Dates are up through June 1st, but more will be added depending on how long the strike continues; please check back later in the month to see if there are more dates added!
If you are a Verizon customer or potential customer (so pretty much anyone!), please call the appropriate number below to let Verizon know what you think of the treatment that their workers have had to endure.
Hope to see everyone on the picket line!
If you are voting online on the PSC strike authorization, you will need a secret PIN. This was emailed to you on Monday from firstname.lastname@example.org. The American Arbitration Association [AAA] is the third party conducting the vote. This PIN should also have been sent to you by AAA in a mailed ballot.
Some members have reported that they have found this email mistakenly went to their spam folder, so be sure to check there. You can also search your email for the “American Arbitration Association” or “email@example.com” to see if you get any hits. If you still don’t see an email from AAA, contact the PSC at 212-354-1252 for help. The PSC will be asking for the PIN email to be resent to to members who have not voted yet; be on the lookout for that if you still haven’t cast your ballot.
Your GC chapter colleagues will be in the Graduate Center lobby every weekday, so if you want to vote here or need assistance, please stop by!
