After many delays, our union is about to enter into contract “pre-negotiations” with the District. Unfortunately, the District is already throwing up roadblocks. Administration is refusing to negotiate over strategies to boost enrollment, taking the stance that enrollment is “out of scope” of contract negotiations. However, given that our stability funding ends in less than three years, rebuilding enrollment is crucial not only to our union and our contract but to the future of our college.
On Wednesday, March 18, we will have a “pre-negotiations” meeting with the District’s bargaining team. At this meeting, we will present our strategies for rebuilding enrollment and make our case for including this topic in negotiations. We will also push to have transparent negotiations that are open to ALL faculty — something that the District has been resisting.
If you support transparent, open bargaining that tackles how we will rebuild our college after years of cuts and attacks, please join us:
Wednesday, March 18
Ocean Campus, Wellness Center, Room 103
