PSC Protests On Plaza During Board of Trustees Meeting

BARUCH COLLEGE — Amid CUNY Professional Staff Congress protesters with vibrant signs, the CUNY Board of Trustees held its monthly meeting on Dec. 4 on the 14th floor of Baruch College’s Newman Vertical Campus.

The meeting began promptly at 4:30 p.m., but was quickly interrupted by the protesters, who started marching and chanting loudly enough to propel the meeting into a standstill. Although the board tried to proceed with the meeting at first, the protesters proved to be too intrusive to allow the meeting to continue. The board called for an executive session, kicking the protesters and anyone not on the board out of the room.
