Health and safety advocate Greenbaum is PSC’s top ‘watchdog’

joan greenbaumNYSUT┬ámembers stood up and cheered to sing the praises of Joan Greenbaum, a health and safety activist from the Professional Staff Congress, who was given the Unsung Heroes Award Friday night at NYSUT’s Health and Safety Leadership Conference.

The retired┬áCUNY┬ácomputer science professor helped create a health and safety committee on each campus to make safer, cleaner workplaces at the city university. Although she wore a deep red Norwegian sweater in accepting her award at this weekend’s conference in Saratoga Springs, Joan is best known for showing up at labor events wearing a long-tailed denim shirt with the logo “PSC Watchdogs.” That’s the name given to the network of health and safety defenders she helped establish at CUNY .

Joan said she advocates for people to get involved in health and safety for “a love of working conditions and a love of ourselves.”
