TalonMarks reported on the sometimes contentious Board of Trustees meeting, where the contract was ultimately approved:

For the Cerritos College Faculty Federation, months of solidarity sparked a domino effect that would ultimately lead the union to receive the negotiated contract agreement.

The Board recorded a 7-0 vote to approve the contract. It goes into effect retroactively to July 1, 2015, with some provisions taking effect in Spring, 2017 or (in the case of salary), July 1, 2016 retroactively, or July 1, 2017. The District has 45 days from the date of approval to disburse retroactive pay to faculty who were employed in the time period of July 1, 2015 to the present.
