- WHO WE ARE:
1995, the New Caucus began as an insurgent group within the
Professional Staff Congress (PSC).... It had a twofold purpose: to
transform the union into an agency that would fight for workers'
rights and social justice; and to protect the right of New Yorkers
to attend the City University of New York, working to keep it open,
accessible, and of high quality to improve the lives of the students
and their families. In order to do this, the New Caucus knew it was
necessary to see an active, engaged membership working
collaboratively with labor, students and community groups."
these words (above), the Northstar Foundation described the New
Caucus in 2001 when it gave us its annual Frederick Douglass Award.
Since 2000, New Caucus has been the elected leadership of the
central union and has worked “collaboratively with labor, students
and community groups” to fulfill the goals described in Northstar’s
tribute. In areas of common interest, we have worked cooperatively
with CUNY Administration. Click
