(Tues. 1/23) Our January Union meeting

All faculty are invited to attend our first Delegate Assembly of the semester on TuesdayJanuary 23 from 3-5pm in MUB 340.
Every two years our Delegate Assembly elects an election commission made up of three AFT 2121 members and one more member who acts as an alternate if needed. The Election Commission members oversee our AFT 2121 leadership elections and assist with ballot counting. Nominations of faculty to be on the AFT 2121 Elections commission may be made in-person at our January Delegate Assembly and Delegates will also cast their votes for Election Commission at this meeting.
The 2018 CFT Convention will be held March 23-25 at the Hilton Orange County Hotel in Costa Mesa. Nominations of faculty to be delegates to the convention may be made in person at our January Delegate Assembly. Emailed nominations may be sent to aft@aft2121.org until 5:00pm on January  26, 2018. If there are more nominees than delegate spots an election by secret ballot will be held later this semester to determine the AFT 2121 convention delegation.

Negotiations

The administration was not able to meet for last week’s scheduled contract negotiation session, so our negotiating team invited all faculty to join us to discuss options for economic proposals that would bring CCSF faculty above Bay 10 median salaries. The session was well attended.

The meeting included a presentation on salaries from Adviser to the Bargaining Team Doug Orr, a bargaining team discussion of options for proposals, and a listening session for members. Faculty in attendance had a lively discussion about a number of scenarios for increasing salaries, the impact they would have if implemented, and the total cost of each scenario. Doug Orr used a database he created to model how each scenario would affect CCSF’s salary ranking in relation to the “Bay 10” at each of 180 different data points.

This week we expect negotiations to be cancelled again. Please join us at the Board of Trustees meeting this week or open negotiations next week instead.

(Thurs. 1/25 & Wed. 1/31) What’s next? How can I support my Bargaining Team?

Commit or re-commit to our Union

Hundreds of faculty who have chosen to re-commit to our Union by signing our new membership form — with its loud, proud commitment to “stick with our union” for a full calendar year —  have helped to keep us in a powerful position for our negotiations. If you have not done so this school year, please help us keep the momentum going and sign a new AFT 2121 membership form.

(Wednesday, 1/17) Open Bargaining Team meeting

We have built a lot of power and momentum together over the last five years. To win better wages, defend educational quality, and improve working conditions, we must continue to stay involved and stick together. Since we will not be meeting with the District’s team tomorrow we invite all faculty to join our Bargaining Team tomorrow for a public meeting instead from 1:30-5PM in MUB 238. We ask everyone to please be respectful of our team’s process and review the open negotiations guidelines.
  • 1:30-2:30PM: Presentation on Salaries by Advisor to the Bargaining Team Doug Orr.
  • 2:30-3:15PM: Bargaining team discussion of options for proposals.
  • 3:15-4PM: Listening session for members and open discussion.
  • 4-5PM: Bargaining Team closed session.

What’s next? How can I support my Bargaining Team?

Share your story

City College is an essential source of community and a vital source of strength in San Francisco. When we won Free City last year we changed the narrative from austerity to growth. Now we must continue building the stability our students deserve to rebuild our college and provide them with high quality education. Help address this crisis with us by telling your story. Why do you love your job? Is the affordability crisis threatening your ability to remain an educator? What about your students? Let’s ask the Board of Trustees and our administration for their support in protecting what matters at our college. Join our union:

  • in public comment to the Board of Trustees (January 25, 4pm, Southeast Campus)
  • or share your story at our Open Negotiations (January 31, 2pm, MUB 238).

Commit or re-commit to our Union

The gains we’ve made in our contract campaign, our fight against the ACCJC, and victory with Free City were made possible by collectively pooling our resources, including our union dues. The hundreds of faculty who have chosen to re-commit to our Union this semester by signing our new membership form — with its loud, proud commitment to “stick with our union” for a full calendar year —  have put us in a powerful position for our latest round of negotiations. If you have not done so this school year, please sign a new AFT 2121 membership form.

Welcome back. Flex info and much more.

Welcome back

Welcome back to the Spring 2018 semester! We hope you had a wonderful holiday break. Our Union has three connected and crucial areas of focus as we begin the year.

The affordability crisis

We all know the cost of living in the San Francisco Bay Area is pushing people out. Many of our faculty face housing instability. We need our CCSF leaders to commit to doing what it takes to confront the affordability crisis, retain and attract well-qualified faculty, and protect educational quality at our college.

City College is an essential source of community and a vital source of strength in San Francisco. When we won Free City last year we changed the narrative from austerity to growth. Now we must continue building the stability our students deserve to rebuild our college and provide them with high quality education.

Help address this crisis with us by telling your story. Why do you love your job? Is the affordability crisis threatening your ability to remain an educator? What about your students? Let’s ask the Board of Trustees and our administration for their support in protecting what matters at our college.  Join our union in public comment to the Board of Trustees (January 25, 4pm, Southeast Campus) or share your story at our Open Negotiations (January 31, 2pm, MUB 238).
 
Bargaining
We have built a lot of power and momentum over the last five years. As a result negotiations for a new contract went pretty well last semester. Our bargaining team reached “tentative agreements” with the District on many non-financial issues. But challenges could grow as negotiations turn to salaries, benefits, and workload. Faculty engagement in the bargaining process is key to maintaining our momentum and winning a successful contract campaign. To win better wages, defend educational quality, and improve working conditions, we have to stay involved and stick together.

Membership drive: Resisting Trump and building power

Trump and anti-labor interests in this country have a plan to debilitate unions. The Janus case, making its way through the supreme court now, threatens labor at all levels. States with right-to-work laws have seen wages cut, benefits slashed, and pensions reduced. We’ve been working hard to get ready by making phone calls, connecting face to face with colleagues, continuing to build the capacity of our rank and file leaders, and increasing membership! While 2017 has been a tough year in many ways, AFT 2121 has had a great year with membership. You can help us keep the momentum going and get more involved to keep our Union strong! Contact Marco Mojica, mmojica@aft2121.org.


AFT 2121 Flex Day

On Flex day we hope you will wear your AFT 2121 t-shirt or button to show your support for our Bargaining Team and our Union. Come find our Union table by Diego Rivera Plaza to pick up aFlex Day Bulletin, an AFT 2121 Spring 2018 Calendar, and an AFT 2121 button.

New AFT 2121 leaders Audrey Wallace and Alexis Litzky will be conducting a “get to know AFT 2121” workshop starting at 1:30 in MUB 170 for recently hired and veteran faculty alike to better understand what AFT 2121 does and how they can get more involved.

Please plan to come to our AFT 2121 meeting from 2:30-4pm in Conlan 101. We will be presenting information about the Bay 10 salary comparison, our CCSF budget analysis, and doing a workshop on how to talk compensation with each other and people outside the college.

Later the PT Committee plans to have a negotiations update and an equal pay for equal work discussion. All faculty are invited to the PT Committee meeting from 4:10-5pm in Conlan 101.
