LCC Faculty Colleagues,
Please find details below on a new MOA and Economic Reopener bargaining.
MOA on Part-time Faculty Compensation for Specific Committees
A new agreement between LCCEA and LCC provides compensation at the rate of two hours pay for every one hour of meeting attendance for specific committees for part-time faculty. (Link.) The additional hour is provided to account for committee work outside of committee meeting time.
These committees are:
Academic Program Review Oversight Committee and associated APR committees
Academic Requirements Review Committee
Institutional Effectiveness Committee
Faculty Professional Development Oversight, Professional Activities, and Faculty Inquiry Group committees
This compensation is similar to compensation for part-time faculty serving on governance councils and is provided in addition to regular inservice hours allotted to part-time faculty.
Economic Reopener Negotiations
Your LCCEA Bargaining Team met with College representatives last Thursday for preliminary discussions about the economic reopener bargaining, which will cover economics for July 1, 2022 through June 30, 2024 as well as non-economic issues.
Thus far, discussions have been limited to ground rules for the negotiations (e.g. frequency of meetings, etc.). The College has not yet responded as to whether a notetaker will be provided nor made a commitment regarding when they will be ready to exchange proposals with LCCEA. We look forward to resolving these questions so that we may move forward with negotiations on behalf of the faculty.
