Have You Been Affected by the Wildfires? We want to help.

Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the fires. We are saddened and scared for our friends, family, and colleagues who have been displaced and we would like to help in any way we can.

We’ve teamed up with the College to take stock of our available resources that might be useful to those in need. To be most effective in finding and allocating supplies and resources, we need to know what your current needs are.

“Us Too” Grievance Success – Sept 2020

Good news! On Sept 8, 2020, we received results of the “Us Too” Grievance arbitration against LCC. LCCEF is awarded step increases for all .5 FTE step eligible employees with retroactive payment back to July 1, 2019. Arbitrator Henry sustained the grievance, finding that LCC violated the plain terms of Paragraph 15 of the CBA’s “Us Too” provision by not providing a step increase to the LCCEF members after it provided a step increase to LCCEA.

Happy Labor Day

On this glorious Labor Day weekend, we wish you and your family health, happiness, and relaxation. We want to recognize the hard work you do to support our students and let you know how honored we are to be working for you. We also want to give our thanks to the countless workers and labor unions whose efforts throughout time have allowed us to have this three-day weekend (and weekends in general) as a break from our labors.

We encourage you to think about one way having a union has helped you, and one way YOU can help your union be stronger and better? Post your thoughts in the comments section below.

Petition – Principles for Safe Re-Opening

There has been growing pressure lately to reopen schools and have our members resume their work in person. We want to ensure any return to work occurs only under conditions that protect workers, students, and the health of the community.

To meet these objectives, the Lane County Labor Chapter Education Caucus (representing educational workers in K-12, community college, and university settings) has developed a set of ten principles for the safe re-opening of educational institutions in our area.

LCCEF endorses these principles and urges our members to pledge their support and sign the associated petition (please share with friends and family as well). They reflect our shared commitment to ensuring safe working and learning conditions for all!

Early Vacation Sell Back MOA

Good news, we have reached an agreement with the College to allow early sell-back of vacation hours this year. Every Fall Term, our contract allows classified employees to sell-back up to 16 hours of accrued vacation time at their current rate of pay, and this MOA has adjusted the dates for this year to allow that sell-back process to begin now (it will continue to be available to employees until 12/31/20).

Please see the full post for more information.
