AFT 2121’s “alternative budget”

At the May 23rd Board of Trustees meeting, AFT 2121 presented an alternative to the District’s Tentative Budget for 2013-14 that balances the needs of students and employees with the need for technology and maintenance upgrades and rebuilding CCSF’s reserves without further cuts. We spent the last negotiations session on May 29th going over our alternative budget with the District.

The AFT alternative budget (pdf flyer) provides for:

  • Additional revenues based on the Governor’s May Revise, including a 1.57% cost-of-living adjustment (COLA) and partial restoration of funds to the “categoricals,” e.g. matriculation, DSP&S, and EOPS
  • Rescission of the District’s ongoing 5% unilateral cut of faculty salaries
  • An accounting of savings in faculty salaries based on attrition due to faculty retirements
  • Funding to increase student employee wages to the SF minimum wage
  • $3.2 million to bolster diminished CCSF budget reserves instead of the $6.3 million proposed by the District. $3.2 million would be sufficient to raise District reserves to 6% of the budget, above the State’s recommended 5% minimum.
  • Substantial increases for needed upgrades in technology, e.g. computers, and for maintenance and repair while saving over a million dollars compared to the District’s Tentative Budget
  • No increases in legal costs
  • Reducing the $1.3 million spent on consultants by $500K
  • Over $7 million surplus available for all constituent groups, OPEB, mitigating layoffs, program and other needs.
  • Eliminates the basis for the administration’s attack on the faculty contract including demands to decrease pro-rata pay and benefits for part-timers, eliminating seniority rehire rights, class size minimums, etc., while paving the way for a quick settlement of stalled contract negotiations.
