Issues temporary restraining order, hearing on injunction set for May 26.

Today, US District Judge Lawrence Kahn issued a temporary restraining order to stop New York State from furloughing state workers, including CUNY faculty and staff. Their union, the Professional Staff Congress/CUNY, filed the motion arguing that the furloughs violated the New York State and US Constitutions.

PSC President Barbara Bowen called the illegal legislation “a fake solution to the deficit.”
