Debate on the Future of CUNY Unionism
Last week I had the privilege of joining four comrades from CUNY Struggle in a debate with the incumbent New Caucus slate at the Graduate Center. The debate featured a good amount of inside baseball that might not be terribly interesting to folks not engaged in day-to-day labor organizing in the CUNY system, but we were able to cut through the minutia and outline a different vision for how workplace organizing can function at CUNY. I'm not saying we definitively won, but let's just say only one slate is publicizing the existence of this video. Check out the rest of the literature from our election here, and come see CUNY Struggle on our panel at the Historical Materialism conference on Saturday, April 22nd, where I will be expanding on the closing remarks presented at our debate.
