Notice to Faculty – CCFF Alerts Coming

Dear colleagues,
In the spirit of keeping facts away from rumor and the truth in the sunshine – the District is not offering 10% – the CCFF, your faculty union, will be doing a number of things.  We will be sending out brief emails, each one highlighting a specific point of negotiation, each one identified in the heading as “Faculty Union Alert # _.”  We will be holding at least four informal question-and-answer sessions where you can come, meet your bargaining team, ask questions, and offer comment.  And on Wednesday, February 17, in the hour before the Board Meeting, we plan to offer soda, pizza, and free T-shirts – a rally to show support for the faculty.
Please note, although the District identified their most recent counter-proposal as their last, best, and final offer, the CCFF still hopes to reach an agreement.  And we are eager to hear your thoughts.
Meeting times:
Thursday, February 4, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, in the Student Center (a focus on part-time)
Thursday, February 4, from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m., in room BE 117
Tuesday, February 9, from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m., in the Gym Meeting Room
Tuesday, February 16, 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. – public E-Board meeting – place TBA  
Board Meeting Rally
Wednesday, February 17, from 5:30 to 700 p.m.
With your support, we will win a much better agreement.
