It was a difficult negotiation and there was a small gain in rehire rights. There will be a 2% increase in salary that will sunset 2023. Which means we need to focus on salary during the next negotiation cycle.
CITRUS COLLEGE IS CLOSED UNTIL THE END OF THE SEMESTER. Faculty will continue to provide remote instruction.
Citrus College has a procedure in effect for the event of a closure due to a pandemic. These procedures are mandated by Los Angeles County Health, state mandates and federal agencies such as CDC. Click here for AP 3505.
Faculty should have other means for delivery of instruction such as the use of Canvas. There are resources on the Citrus College website to help with the transition. If you need help consider contacting us as we can help with using ConferZoom or other pedogolical issues. (We are teaching, too.) Be flexible with students who are ill.
The best protection is to wash your hands and avoid touching your face.
This Spring many districts are entering into negotiations including our own. Citrus College Adjunct Faculty Federation by law is the exclusive bargaining agent for all of the adjunct faculty whether they are members or not. However, the power of any negotiations resides with the willingness of the represented members to support those negotiations. If the bargaining unit members are apathetic then the negotiating team has no power to demand changes in the contract that would improve the working conditions of the unit. The district is under no obligation to bargain more than what is already in the law (Education Code). It is up to the representation to show that they deserve better wages and working conditions. How do you demonstrate those needs? Support your bargaining team by going to union meetings or negotiation team meetings, be willing to go to a Board of Trustees meeting and express your views and be willing to take a job action whether it is wearing a particular color on a particular day, a button or willing to picket.
Speak up and let your voice be heard!!
Coronavirus. Covid-19. Pandemic. Fear of illness and even death has become a side effect of the latest viral outbreak. An important first step to take is to accept that the coronavirus is real and is serious, but that by following the precautionary measures, we can make it through these tough times.
Skipping school has now become an academic norm; at least since 2018 when AB 705 was enacted. In a move to eliminate delays in a student’s educational progress, AB 705 actually allows students to overstep remedial coursework and go straight into transfer level courses. Without a fuller understanding of basic English and math skills, however, many students face more difficulties when trying to keep up with transfer level work; thus, delaying their educational progress (and possibly with a cut in federal aid).
This year’s CFT Convention celebrated its centennial year, March 22-24 at the lovely Millennium Biltmore in Los Angeles.
