(Tues. 1/23) Our January Union meeting
All faculty are invited to attend our first Delegate Assembly of the semester on Tuesday, January 23 from 3-5pm in MUB 340.
Every two years our Delegate Assembly elects an election commission made up of three AFT 2121 members and one more member who acts as an alternate if needed. The Election Commission members oversee our AFT 2121 leadership elections and assist with ballot counting. Nominations of faculty to be on the AFT 2121 Elections commission may be made in-person at our January Delegate Assembly and Delegates will also cast their votes for Election Commission at this meeting.
The 2018 CFT Convention will be held March 23-25
at the Hilton Orange County Hotel in Costa Mesa. Nominations of faculty to be delegates to the convention may be made in person at our January Delegate Assembly.
Emailed nominations may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
until 5:00pm on January 26, 2018
. If there are more nominees than delegate spots an election by secret ballot will be held later this semester to determine the AFT 2121 convention delegation.
The administration was not able to meet for last week’s scheduled contract negotiation session, so our negotiating team invited all faculty to join us to discuss options for economic proposals that would bring CCSF faculty above Bay 10 median salaries. The session was well attended.
The meeting included a presentation on salaries from Adviser to the Bargaining Team Doug Orr, a bargaining team discussion of options for proposals, and a listening session for members. Faculty in attendance had a lively discussion about a number of scenarios for increasing salaries, the impact they would have if implemented, and the total cost of each scenario. Doug Orr used a database he created to model how each scenario would affect CCSF’s salary ranking in relation to the “Bay 10” at each of 180 different data points.
This week we expect negotiations to be cancelled again. Please join us at the Board of Trustees meeting this week or open negotiations next week instead.
(Thurs. 1/25 & Wed. 1/31) What’s next? How can I support my Bargaining Team?
Share your story
Help us address the affordability crisis by telling your story. Why do you love your job? Is the affordability crisis threatening your ability to remain an educator? What about your students?
Join our union:

Let’s ask the Board of Trustees and our administration for their support in protecting what matters at our college.

Commit or re-commit to our Union
Hundreds of faculty who have chosen to re-commit to our Union by signing our new membership form — with its loud, proud commitment to “stick with our union” for a full calendar year — have helped to keep us in a powerful position for our negotiations. If you have not done so this school year, please help us keep the momentum going and sign a new AFT 2121 membership form.

College for All
CFT just donated $50,000 to this campaign! The College for All initiative would create free tuition for undergraduates in all three public college and university systems in California by taxing the top 0.2% of wealthiest Californians. After our huge win on Free City College our Union and CFT are both helping with the petition drive to get this on the ballot for the November 2018 election. You can get involved!
