Marathon bargaining next week, August 6 & 7

On Tuesday and Wednesday, August 6 and 7, AFT 2121 will be bargaining to help save City College.

As you know, our contract expired on December 31, 2012 and has not been extended despite many long hours at the table over the spring.

ACCJC has pointed to “unresolved labor disputes” as one of the factors in its decision to terminate City College’s accreditation. We don’t think that an unresolved contract and a couple of outstanding grievances are good reasons to withhold accreditation. But we want to do all that we can to make it clear that we are committed to saving City College.

Key unresolved issues at this time include the imposed pay cuts and a funding plan for retiree health benefits, as well as management demands to shift even more of the cost of medical and dental benefits to faculty; to allow cancellation of classes with over 20 students; and to restrict or eliminate part-time reemployment preference rights.

At an emergency organizing meeting on July 10 (which included Executive Board and Delegate Assembly members and AFT 2121 members who have been involved in member organizing this summer), members unanimously voted to approach the bargaining table even more vigorously.

We have offered to spend August 6 and 7 in marathon bargaining. This District negotiating team for the College has accepted these bargaining dates. We will open this process for AFT 2121 members to observe, and we encourage you to plan to attend if you’re able.

We will post an update, including time and location information, soon.
