You’ve probably heard rumors that administration is planning to offer some sort of retirement incentive, or “golden handshake,” to encourage long-time tenured faculty to retire. Any plan they offer must be negotiated with AFT 2121. We met with administration about it last week. At this point, we have more questions than answers.
Our numbers of overall faculty and of full-timers are already dropping dramatically. We currently have only 594 full-time faculty, down from a high of 823 in 2011. It’s hard to imagine what CCSF would look like if we lost 100 full-timers. Admin has said nothing so far about their plans to replace faculty who retire, beyond the idea that all hiring should go through the normal CCSF hiring processes.
We want to explore all options that would benefit our members who are near retirement. But we’re also concerned that early retirement could further downsize the faculty and the college. We will need to learn more about admin’s intentions to hire replacement faculty.
Here is what we’ve heard in discussions so far. Please keep in mind that these are only preliminary ideas, and all of this could change. Read more ›
