Bargaining Update: Common Course Numbering and Working Conditions

LCC Faculty Colleagues,

Your LCCEA Bargaining Team met with the College again today to continue negotiation over impacts of Common Course Numbering* (i.e., CCN) and Working Conditions to take effect after our current MOA expires at the end of Spring. Meetings are on Thursdays at 4:15pm in CEN 402 and on Zoom and open to faculty to attend. Thank you to the faculty members who attended this week to show support!

We discussed ground rules again but have not yet agreed on all points. 

The College provided a modestly updated CCN proposal (below) that:

  • Does provide that the MOA is retroactive to Summer 2022 as we had proposed; but
  • Continues to include language that would restrict faculty speech, which is an unlawful and therefore prohibited proposal;
  • Provides stipends for faculty serving on or chairing statewide committees as they had previously proposed; and
  • Continues to provide no compensation for curriculum revisions or new course development required by common course numbering.

In addition, the College had no response to our Working Conditions MOA proposal that we presented last week.

*CCN assigns the same course number to comparable courses across all community colleges and universities to streamline transfer from two- to four-year post-secondary educational institutions. The changes once determined by statewide committees must be implemented by each institution, including LCC.
