The Reorganization Plan

The reorganization proposals that have been floating around have one thing in common. They have generally angered and confused our faculty. Any reorganization must only happen if it can be demonstrated to promote student success. There are important questions that must be answered. What problems are being solved with the reorganization? How does the specific plan for departmental changes solve those specific problems? What evidence is there in terms of student success to justify these proposed changes? What are the impacts on the working conditions of our faculty? The answers we have heard so far to these general questions have been vague and unsatisfactory. We hope that the administration reconsiders this ill-advised plan. Tim Killikelly has twice requested meetings with the District to discuss these plans. We hope to have a meeting on these issues in the near future. The letters he has written are below.  If you would like to sign a letter in opposition to the reorganization plan, you can download it here and email it to okeller@aft2121.org or put it in campus mail to AFT 2121.

Re:       Possible reorganization of CCSF Department Structure

Dear Chancellor Tyler:

I am writing you about faculty concerns over the potential impact of reorganizing the CCSF departmental structure. Realigning departments would impact assignments and scheduling of full and part-time faculty. It could potentially restrict or otherwise impact what faculty teach, what faculty are assigned to do, how they are assigned, actual duties and workload, reemployment rights, upgrading, and more.

 This leads us to question the wisdom of such changes, especially without engaging AFT over their potential impact on faculty working conditions. We therefore request that the administration meet with AFT to provide us with information about the reorganization plan and to engage us over the potential impact on CCSF faculty.

Sincerely,

Tim Killikelly, President

Dear Chancellor Tyler:

We wrote you on November 7, 2014, regarding faculty concerns over the potential impact of reorganizing the CCSF departmental structure. We requested that the administration meet with AFT to provide us with information about the reorganization plan and to engage us over the potential impact on CCSF faculty.

We would like to schedule a meeting with the District as soon as possible where the parties engage over the potential impact of departmental restructuring and mergers on faculty working conditions. Please let us know your disposition regarding this request.

Sincerely,

Tim Killikelly, President
