LCC Faculty Colleagues,
Your LCCEA Bargaining Team met again with the College on Monday. The three-hour meeting focused largely on a discussion of the college’s interests regarding evaluations.
The College declined to provide an updated economic offer despite the fact that the College budget has been balanced since early April and despite the overwhelmingly good news from Salem. The legislature is set to make allocations to community colleges at nearly $641 Million dollars, a $50 Million increase from February, which will result in an additional $2 Million in funding to LCC each year for the next two years.
The College’s offer remains at $0 with a 0% cost of living adjustment and a “step freeze.”
We will be back at the table in early October when the College has stated that they will provide an updated offer.
