1. Report back: Arming CCSF police

Next up: Presentation to Board of Trustees on arming CCSF police (Thursday, May 25)

At last week’s PGC meeting week many faculty, staff, community, and students spoke in support of and against arming our campus police. In an 8-7 vote PGC members voted against passing forward a recommendation to arm our CCSP campus police. And they voted yes to recommend establishing a public safety review commission and funding professional training for CCSF Police Department Officers.

Next up: There will be a Campus Public Safety Management Study presentation at this Thursday’s Board of Trustees meeting from 4:30-5:30 PM on Ocean Campus in MUB 140. AFT 2121 leaders will be there to tell our CCSF Board of Trustees not to arm our Campus Police.

This semester our AFT 2121 Executive Board and our rank-and-file General Membership voted to stand with Associated Students and CCSF Solidarity Committee student leaders in opposing the arming of CCSF campus police.

We’ve seen the lasting impact of police violence on families in black, Latino, and poor neighborhoods. We believe arming our police will do more harm than good to our students from these communities. Community policing is the model that has worked for CCSF. Our police have been able to keep our community safe without guns for many decades. This should be celebrated and honored, and serve as a model for other schools.  We don’t believe that arming our campus police is the way forward.

ATTN new CCSF hires: Step placement deadline, June 9 | Admin fails to meet contract terms

ATTENTION: FACULTY HIRED BY CCSF THIS YEAR, 2016/17

Faculty hired during Fall 2016 or Spring 2017 may be entitled to additional pay based on previous work experience, but you must act now.

New hires were sent a March 10, 2017 letter from Human Resources detailing how to apply for salary step replacement. Because some faculty did not receive the letter, the deadline has been extended until June 9th.

To take advantage of this, you must have your previous employers submit information to HR.


ADMINISTRATION FAILS TO MEET CONTRACT TERMS, YET AGAIN

We finalized our contract in October 2016. In that contract, administration agreed to restore our frozen step from 2009-2010. By the end of the Fall 2016 semester, administration had restored the step for faculty who work full-time. But for faculty who work part-time, it was a more complicated calculation, and it didn’t happen right away.

Administration has been telling us for months that they’re working on it. Now it turns out they will not get it together in time for May payroll. Our members will finish the school year still underpaid. Seven months after signing our contract, administration has not fulfilled their obligations.

We have demanded that administration not wait until the June paycheck to fix this, but instead immediately fix the step in the Banner system so that pay is correct moving forward and cut off-cycle checks to pay the money we are owed for the 2016-2017 school year.

This is only one of several contract provisions that administration failed to address. This pattern must change. If administration is serious about negotiating in good faith, they will live up to their contract and legal obligations. Otherwise they will face continued strife, unfair labor practice charges, and strikes.

(Thursday, 5/11) Join our Affordable Housing Forum

affordable housing forum 5.8.17_This Thursday, join AFT 2121 for a forum examining affordable housing in the Bay Area. As we prepare for our upcoming contract negotiations, a major issue for City College faculty is the soaring cost of living in SF, especially the cost of housing. We at CCSF feel the impacts of the affordability crisis on our budgets and paychecks. As the college builds on Free City and faces another wave of retirements, these astronomical costs affect the City College’s ability to attract and retain new faculty. We achieved a much needed raise in our last contract — and we have more work to do.

Matt Hardy of the United Educators of San Francisco will explain how his union used their contract struggle to address teachers’ housing, Maurice Goodman, Trustee at San Mateo Community College District, will outline SMCC’s faculty and staff housing program, and Tony Kelly, president of the Potrero Hill Democratic Club, will explain how we can make sure San Francisco educators are able to live in the communities we serve.

The Affordable Housing Forum will be held this Thursday, May 11 from 1-2:30pm at the Ocean Campus in the Student Lounge of the Student Union Building. Please join us!

5. Report-back: Arming CCSF Police

On Wednesday, May 3, the Academic Senate Executive Committee considered a resolution to survey the faculty about arming the CCSF Campus Police. The resolution was introduced in preparation for a May 18 Participatory Governance Council vote on a proposal recommending that CCSF Campus Police carry firearms.

Due to numerous concerns expressed by faculty, the survey motion was withdrawn. In its place, a new motion was introduced: this one a directive to AS President Mandy Liang to request that the PGC table their vote on arming police until the fall, so that the Academic Senate will have time to get more faculty input on this issue. This motion passed.
We will keep union members informed about further developments
