Quick Update

June 4, 2020

LCC Faculty Colleagues,

A quick update –

The College has not accepted any furlough day/ workshare proposals. At this point, without a very creative restructuring of work days, it appears unlikely that any agreement will be possible that takes advantage of additional CARES Act funding, which means the College is effectively losing the opportunity to access hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal funding that would not otherwise be available to LCC and that would provide protection for both employer and employee.

LCCEA representatives have received countless complaints from faculty about the College’s inaction on WorkShare. We share your concerns. Many faculty also sent questions and concerns about the tenor and substance of the Town Hall meetings. Faculty members who have expressed that something felt “off” are right – there are protections that require employers in a unionized workplace to act in good faith and avoid attempting to negotiate directly with employees.

Please keep an eye out for a survey that will go out to all LCCEA members soon regarding Spring term feedback, plans for Fall, safety, and other critical questions.
