After our unified organizing over the last year and a successful strike last semester we have a Tentative Agreement! Our Negotiating Team, Executive Board, and Delegate Assembly have all recommended this agreement for ratification. The contract ratification vote is an opportunity for all faculty to register their voice about the new Tentative Agreement . By having a strong turnout, we send a message about the unity and strength of our Union. Be sure to also fill out a faculty survey about the contract when you vote. Do you know where and when you will vote?
The District has agreed to apply the salary increases to the restored 2007/08 faculty salary, as requested by AFT. Faculty salary will be calculated by first restoring our lost salary with a 3.7% restoration to our 2007/08 salary schedule. Then the new 2015/16 schedule will be computed by adding 5.7% (1.02% COLA 2% 2.68%) to the restored 2007/08 schedule, which is slightly more advantageous to faculty. Our 2016/17 1% salary increase will then be applied to our newest 2015-16 salary schedule.

AFT 2121, CFT, AFT, and faculty organizations have filed a new complaint against the ACCJC with the Department of Education. We are asking that the Secretary of Education immediately delist ACCJC.
Our complaint focuses on new evidence since 2013 that the ACCJC remains not “widely accepted” by the educational community. The DOE has already found that they are not in compliance with this Federal regulation and they continue to be in violation. View CFT’s press release on the new complaint.
The complaint also focuses on the violation of Federal Due Process rules in the Restoration Status that is being applied only to CCSF.
We urge the DOE to finally end ACCJC’s misrule!
