New Adjunct Basic Health Benefit

On October 26 President Bowen sent the following letter to adjuncts on the health insurance plan.

The Trustees of the PSC-CUNY Welfare Fund voted this afternoon to extend adjunct health insurance through the month of November. We had expected the final review of the proposed new coverage to be complete by the end of this month, but because of the complexity of the proposal the review is still ongoing. Coverage for eligible adjuncts, under the terms currently in place, will continue through November 30, 2012, and will be provided through the PSC-CUNY Welfare Fund.

Again, I want to thank you for bearing with us as we bring this difficult negotiation to a close. While the PSC leadership is grateful to the Welfare Fund Trustees for voting to continue coverage and to the University for agreeing to support the financial terms of that coverage, we never intended to have these month-to-month extensions. I know that the lack of certainty has been extraordinarily difficult-especially because it involves something as intimate and fundamental as healthcare. Thank you for your patience.

Our goal remains to negotiate health insurance comparable to the current insurance, with no break in coverage. We will provide further information as soon as it becomes available.
