As PCC faces challenges to balance its 2017-19 budget, you should know that your Federation bargaining team is fighting on your behalf to preserve – and improve – your existing workplace pay, benefits, and conditions. It’s worth noting that without a strong union, PCC administrators could impose budget restrictions however they chose.
As I said in my last message, we believe there are budgetary funds for a fair and reasonable settlement on pay and benefits. Please keep this position in mind if you choose to attend a budget forum.
The more active members we have, the stronger our position. So if you haven’t signed your membership card, please activate it now. And sign up to attend an open bargaining session so that you can have a front row seat to negotiations. The next bargaining session is this Friday, May 26 from 9am-noon at CLIMB. The tentative agenda is as follows:
- Cost of Living Allowance (COLA)
- Health Insurance
- Top Step
- PT Faculty Pay Equity
You can sign up here to attend. I hope to see some of you there.
Together we are stronger!
Frank Goulard, PCCFFAP President
