Why I’m Voting Against the “Historic” PSC-CUNY Contract for Adjuncts

The contract I will vote against is likely to pass because of a consensus of indifference to changing the conversation around what is “teaching,” and fear of an unknown worse case. No doubt naively, I vote “NO,” hoping to join with others and influence the next contract and general discussion. I will vote against this “pathbreaking” and “fair” and what was referred to as “historic” contact hoping that there will be an educational transformation, when enough people stop making excuses for the current contract and educational system with its acknowledged weaknesses and start to care enough about making changes that will significantly improve the situation.
