Hello Faculty

After our negotiations session on 02/11/2022, CCFF and the District have officially moved to jointly file for impasse. At this time CCFF and the District agree to file for impasse on the following issues: 

Article 8-Salary

Article 15-Large Class Pay

Article 3-Union Rights

Article 14-Student (Office) Hours

Article 11-Department Chairs

Article 12-Program Directors

Article 4-Assignment

The reason these particular articles will be moved to impasse is because they all include some sort of economic element. 

The District has begun the process of preparing the appropriate documents. CCFF will review the documents and provide a response and then the paperwork will be jointly filed with California Public Employment Relations Board (PERB).  

CCFF and the District will meet to potentially settle the following articles that we believe we are very close on. 

Article 27-Sabbatical

Article 37-Faculty Service Areas

Article 35-Payroll Deductions

Article 7 and 16 week calendar MOU-Calendar/16 week Calendar

Article 30-Grievance

In today’s meeting we were able to reach a tentative agreement (TA) on Article 18: Sick Leave. The changes to this article move our sick leave from three “buckets” (overload, summer, and regular) into two “buckets” (basic and excess). All accrued leave up to 12 days annually will be put into your basic sick leave. Any sick leave accrued beyond 12 days annually will be excess sick leave. All of your historical overload and summer sick leave will be reallocated into either basic or excess sick leave as of July 1, 2022.

As an example, going forward, faculty will no longer be required to only use summer sick leave during summer assignment or overload sick leave in our overload assignment. 

Please see the last economic (salary) proposals, from both the District and CCFF, prior to impasse below. This is where both parties do not agree
