If you read Frank’s latest bargaining update, you’ll understand why we need to do more to let the administration and the PCC Board know that quality education for our students isn’t free.
We’ve been telling them that for almost a year. We’ve had over 200 members show up at negotiations sessions and over 50 at the board meeting at September. But they are still not hearing the message.
We need you—whether you’ve been plugged in since we started negotiating in February or just tuned in now. Please join us, along with our Classified colleagues, for a UNION DAY OF ACTION this Thursday, October 24. When we stand together, we are strong.
Because the PCC Board ultimately holds budgetary powers, we are bringing our argument directly to them.
- Informational picket at both entrances to the Sylvania campus from 3:00-5:00 so that the board sees us when they arrive for the Board meeting.
- An information session and rally in the SY CC building (5:00-6:00) prior to the PCC board meeting
- Board meeting starting at 6:00. They saw us coming in, they’ll see us in the board room, too.
If you can come for part or all, we need you to help get this contract done. It’s time.
If you like details, there’s more below the signatures. But we hope to see you Thursday,
Sara Robertson and Nick Hengen Fox, PCCFFAP Organizing Committee Co-Chairs
Meet at the union office (ST 01) before 3pm or just join us at one of our two picket sites after 3pm.
Bring: a rain jacket and a smile. We’ll have signs and guidance for you.
Some union groups will be riding shuttles from the other campuses–if you would be a shuttle coordinator for your campus, please let us know!
Shuttle departure times from each campus to Sylvania
|Campus departure times||Arrive at Sylvania||Link to schedule||Campus contact riding shuttle|

Our federations will have dinner available before the board meeting.
No need to speak, but your presence is essential. We will bring our passion and enthusiasm and be seen and heard.
Wear blue–our union’s color–if you can.
