Oregon Senator Floyd Prozanski wrote LCC President Hamilton and Board Chair Eyster urging them to come to a “quick, fair resolution” in faculty contract negotiations.
Sen. Prozanski writes, “The Legislature made education funding a key focus during the 2019 session, including increased funding for community colleges. I’m pleased this investment and additional savings brought an additional $2 million to LCC. However, part of our intention with these investments was to ensure that education jobs remained good jobs — jobs where we could recruit and retain an experienced and motivated work force to educate our students.”
“The investments that LCCEA seeks in COLAs and in adjustments to part-time faculty pay represent the kind of investments I had hoped to see. I urge you to come to a quick and fair resolution, so LCC can remain focused on its mission of education.”
LCCEA deeply appreciates the support of the Senator Prozanski and the recognition of the intended purpose of state investment in community colleges and the importance of maintaining the educational value of LCC to its students through adequate faculty compensation. #PTFTFacultyUnited #SupportLCCFaculty #Red4Ed
