We are very happy to announce the successful ratification of the new re-opener contract between your union, AFT 6157, and the District. The vote was passed by a 99% vote of the faculty, both full time and adjunct.
This was a particularly difficult and time consuming negotiations but the rally at the board regarding Non-Credit, the continuing medical benefits for full time faculty and the language in this new contract is very good for all faculty, including additional money for our adjunct faculty by adding Step 10 to the their salary schedule..
We want to express our appreciation to the 2016-2017 AFT 6157 negotiating team, Mark Newton, Fabio Gonzalez, Jory Segal, Randy Pratt all expertly led by the AFT 6157 Executive Director Barbara Hanfling.
Please take a minute and say thanks to them for their hard work, dedication, commitment to your union. Also thanks to Dorian Tran and Olga Morales-Anaya for being our election committee.
Paul Fong AFT 6157 President
