Bargaining Update & Survey

Bargaining Update from 11/29:

As expected, our tempo has picked up, having met three times in the last week (dates below after the update). Here’s where we are right now:


Errors have been corrected in the calculator, and we’re looking at financials.

Article 3:

This article contains a lot of definitions on types of workers, as well as rules around temporary workers and 1039s. Management returned their proposal at the 11/29 session, and we anticipate returning a counter soon. We’re getting very close on this one.

Based on Management’s comments on why they would like to keep long term 1039s, we have a survey for everyone to help us provide information back to management on this article on Friday.

LCCEF Survey: 1039s as Flexible Option for Management

Article 12:

This article deals with working hours, overtime, workload, health and safety, and working days. In addition to proposing a change to how overtime is calculated, we also proposed raising the cap in comp time carryover, requiring the development of a workplace violence and bullying prevention program, and incorporated language from the various COVID MOAs which may be applicable under a future public health emergency in order to expedite the college’s response to a future public health crisis.

Article 18:

This article deals with Classification and Compensation. We returned a proposal at the 11/27 session which more clearly defined the conditions for considering a comp & class study complete, and which requires the creation of an oversight committee with union participation.

Appendix C:

This appendix deals with how job classifications are split into job families. We agreed with some of management’s proposals for job family changes, including the creation of a public safety job family, but disagreed with some of their proposed changes which we felt would have created very small families that could then be targeted for layoffs. We also sought to ensure appendix C would be reopened when bargaining implementation of the class & comp study.

Professional Development Article:

We proposed moving language around professional development out of the fringe benefits article (13) and into it’s own article.


We also spent some time going through the status of our articles. Here’s the status of articles (and selected appendices) today:

Article 1 (Agreement) – Not Opened
