AFT 2121 July Negotiations Update

June 30th has come and gone without a new contract. We continue to work under our old contract because of the delays of the District in bargaining with AFT this year. At our last scheduled negotiations session of the semester, on May 20, 2015, the District said while it did not philosophically disagree with our May 13 compensation proposal, they needed to do more work on the 2015/16 CCSF budget before making a specific proposal to our Union on faculty compensation and benefits. It is unclear what that will mean for their proposal.
We made our position clear that the restoration of salary cuts and salary increases to restore our lost purchasing power for all faculty is our compensation priority. Click here to catch up on all the details of our Union’s proposals and the Districts lack of substantive responses to them.
Progress was made on some issues:
  • We agreed to a Side Letter confirming an expedited procedure for offering/assigning additional hours within departments/ disciplines for temporary full-time upgrades for part-time faculty.
  • AFT and the District agreed to modify timelines in the student complaint procedure (Article 11).
  • We agreed to continue to exchange information over the summer on the District’s budget, health care costs, overloads/underloads of full-timers, salary and benefit surveys; and examine faculty sick leave accrual and use.

AFT bargaining team members are also meeting this summer to continue work on developing a comprehensive analysis of the District budget (with help from National AFT); salary/benefit surveys; student enrollment initiative; and other issues. We will resume direct negotiations with the District during Flex week in August.

In Unity,
