This Week: Information Sessions on Tentative Agreement

Happy New Year!
Your LCCEA Bargaining Team reached a Tentative Agreement with the College over winter break. (See: SignedTA12112018.) This one-year agreement (with associated compensation increases) will be retroactive to July 1, 2018.
We will hold two information sessions, and an electronic ratification vote will begin this week as well.
Tuesday 1/8/19, 1:00-2:00 p.m. in CEN 303
Wednesday 1/9/19, 4:15-5:15 p.m. in CEN 303
Please stop by for information about the agreement or to share any questions or concerns you may have. Also, given that this T.A. is for a contract that will expire June 30, 2019, we will also begin negotiations soon for the next multi-year contract, so please feel free to bring any issues you wish to discuss for the next contract as well.
We hope you have a most wonderful first week of the term!
Your LCCEA Bargaining Team:

AAUP Reports on the “Casualization of Faculty Labor”

The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) has just produced a report using IPEDS data from 2016 that illustrates how prevalent the overuse of non-tenured, part-time faculty is at two-year institutions. “The casualization of faculty labor is reflected in the unbundling of the traditional faculty role,” the report suggests. “This data snapshot concerns those who teach in higher education, in positions that may or may not also include research, professional development, and service.”
