LCC Faculty Colleagues,
LCCEA and LCC have reached an agreement on reassignment time and compensation for shared governance. Please see the MOA here.
The Memorandum of Agreement provides:* One course release per term up to .25 FTE* for chairs of governance councils, including Faculty Council;* Commensurate compensation for part-time faculty serving as chairs;* Compensation for part-time faculty serving on governance councils but not as chairs at the rate of 2 hours at regular rates for every 1 hour of meeting attendance (to account for additional committee work outside of meeting time).
*For faculty whose individual courses exceed .25 FTE, consistent with current contract language, this may mean that a faculty member has release for two terms instead of three with any remaining / unused release FTE paid as overload.
We find this agreement to be reasonable and demonstrative of a renewed commitment to the shared governance system.
