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!!
