Check your check

The District continues to make it almost impossible for faculty to discern their pay or determine their sick leave accrual. These failures by the District to provide basic salary and sick leave information are part of a larger pattern of disregard for and violation of faculty and Union rights at City College under the new administration.

The tables posted on the CCSF payroll website are incomplete. They give information that only applies to some employees. It may be hard – or impossible – to tell if the posted schedules apply to you. Please use the pay schedules and methodology listed below, which are more complete, to check your check.

 

NEW INFORMATION FOR APRIL 2015

In 2013 contract negotiations, we won a partial restoration of previous pay cuts.  Part of that restoration happened in 2014. Another 0.5% will kick in on the April 2015 paycheck.

The April restoration is retroactive for the entire Spring 2015 semester. On the April 2015 paycheck, you should have received a small retro payment for January, February, and March. The retro payment should be 0.5% of everything you earned in those months.

In addition, the District overcharged some faculty for health insurance starting in January 2015. If you were overcharged, you should have received a refund on the April 2015 paycheck. Details are here: http://www.aft2121.org/2015/03/negotiations-update-health-service-system-rates-for-2015/

In Summer and Fall 2015, we’ll see more changes. Most part-timers, even those teaching short-term classes, will be Pay-By-Load instead of hourly. Day-to-day substitutes will still be paid hourly.

 

FULL-TIME FACULTY PAY

April 2015 and later includes a 0.5% restoration of previous cuts. The payscale is here: 2015-FT-Annual

The 2012-2013 academic year was complicated. We were shifting from pay twice per month to once per month, and we also took mid-year cuts. This worksheet will help you figure out your pay: 2012-2013-FT-Calculator. Select your correct salary from the dropdown menu on the left. Find your correct salary on the 2007 payscale below.

FULL-TIME OVERLOAD: PAY-BY-LOAD

For pay-by-load assignments, part-time faculty and full-time faculty overload are paid 86% of the full-time regular payscale, pro-rated for FTE. If you don’t know your FTE, you can use this calculator: FTE Calculator , or you can get the information from your chair or coordinator.

January 2014 to March 2015 includes a 1% restoration of previous cuts. Click here for the calculator: 2014-PBL-Calculator

For earlier semesters, use the FT scales, multiply by 0.86, and then multiply by your FTE.

COLUMN & STEP

The pay information on Web4 no longer includes Column/Step and sick leave information. Lost is the old, superior “pay advice” graphic. You can still receive the graphic as a pdf through a system called “paysend”. Paysend can only be sent to your ccsf.edu email address, and it cannot be re-sent.

On the paysend graphic, look at the box labeled “step/sem”.

  • For FT faculty, the number in that box is your step.
  • Remember that there were no step increases in the 2009-10 school year. Our steps were frozen for a year in order to help balance the budget, and we have yet to “catch up.”
  • For PT faculty, the number is your semester count. Four semesters is equal to one step. For example, a part-timer with 14 semesters is at Step 4.

 

SICK LEAVE

Sick leave information is available in Web4. However, it’s incomplete and in some cases, incorrect. AFT 2121 has filed a grievance over errors in sick leave accounting and lack of transparency. We are currently negotiating with the District about how to fix sick leave accounting going forward and correct past errors.

If you think your sick leave is listed incorrectly on Web4, please fill out this form:
Report-Payroll-Problems
The form automatically submits information to AFT and to the payroll department.

If this is an urgent issue, for instance if you are about to run out of sick leave, please say so on the form.

Full-time faculty working 100% load should receive 10 days at the beginning of each school year, or a pro-rated amount if on a reduced workload.

Full-time credit instructional assignments: When you use sick days, you use them in full-day or half-day increments. This is true no matter how many hours are in your actual workday.

For full-time non-credit, counseling, library, and instructionally-related assignments: You earn sick leave in days, but you use it in hours.
▪  Noncredit faculty can use 5 hours for each day earned
▪  Counselors and librarians can use 6 hours for each day earned
▪  Instructionally-related faculty can use 7 hours for each day earned

Part-time faculty earn and use sick leave on an hourly basis. Each semester, you earn about the number of hours assigned per week. For example, if you’re assigned six hours per week, you earn roughly six hours of sick leave per semester.

For PT faculty paid by load (PBL), sick leave is awarded at the beginning of each semester and appears on your paycheck as “sick load.” Your sick load hours = .057 x total assigned hours for the semester.

PT faculty paid hourly accrue sick leave on each paycheck. Your sick load hours = .057 x total assigned hours for that paycheck.
