Press & Sun-Bulletin: BCC students plan strike to support teachers

Instructors caught in contract battle

DICKINSON — Some Broome Community College students plan to voice displeasure with the school’s trustees Wednesday by skipping some classes.

A small group of student organizers is urging students to spend part of the day at the BCC student center as opposed to their classrooms to protest the faculty’s lack of a contract, and the school’s lack of a permanent president. The group has distributed fliers urging students to skip classes, beginning at 11 a.m.
