This is just a quick post to update you on the results of our recent ratification vote. The Economic Reopener TA passed by a narrow margin and the result is
The LCCEF bargaining team has reached a tentative agreement (TA) with the College for the 2020 contract economic reopener. The team believes this is the best deal we can get under the circumstances, and we support a “Yes” vote on ratification. We will be conducting the ratification vote in the coming weeks.
You’re invited to a General Membership Meeting! Come for a bargaining update and discussion of our new tentative agreement with the College (subject to ratification by the membership). Get the details and ask questions about the upcoming ratification vote.
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.
The Separation Incentive and Double-Coverage MOA has been signed by LCCEF and the College Administration and is now active.
Please comment on the post with any questions or contact us directly.
If you would like to take advantage of the Separation Incentive benefit, you will find details, instructions, and the necessary HR forms in the full post.
We wanted to share the results of the most recent poll; respondents were overwhelmingly (92.3%) in favor of separating the Separation Incentive and Double Coverage Waiver into their own MOA.
We’ve sent our proposed MOA to the administration; we will update when we have their response.
For planning purposes: Per the College’s requirements, please know that employees intending to use the Retirement/Separation Incentive will need to be ready to separate from Lane by the end of September.
