50 CUNY Professors Leave Faculty Union Over Anti-Israel Resolution

(JNS) A group of professors from the City University of New York (CUNY) have resigned from their faculty union after it passed an anti-Israel resolution and said it would consider supporting the BDS movement.

The Professional Staff Congress (PSC), the union that approved the resolution, told the New York Post that at least 50 educators have resigned or sent notice that they intend to do so.

The resolution said “PSC-CUNY condemns the massacre of Palestinians by the Israeli state’’ and denounces Israel’s “expansionism and violent incursions into occupied territories.” It also said that PSC-CUNY “cannot be silent about the continued subjection of Palestinians to the state-supported displacement, occupation and use of lethal force by Israel.”
