This week: VOTE on our Tentative agreement until August 20th
After our unified organizing over the last year and a successful strike last semester we have a Tentative Agreement! Our Negotiating Team, Executive Board, and Delegate Assembly have all recommended this agreement for ratification. The contract ratification vote is an opportunity for all faculty to register their voice about the new Tentative Agreement. By having a strong turnout, we send a message about the unity and strength of our Union. Be sure to also find a purple faculty contract survey near your ballot box and fill one out when you vote. Voting goes through Saturday, August 20th. Do you know where and when you will vote?
The District has agreed to apply the salary increases to the restored 2007/08 faculty salary, as requested by AFT. Faculty salary will be calculated by first restoring our lost salary with a 3.7% restoration to our 2007/08 salary schedule. Then the new 2015/16 schedule will be computed by adding 5.7% (1.02% COLA 2% 2.68%) to the restored 2007/08 schedule, which is slightly more advantageous to faculty. Our 2016/17 1% salary increase will then be applied to our newest 2015-16 salary schedule.
