On June 5, 2019, the MCCC Board of Directors unanimously passed the following motion. “The MCCC Board of Directors recommends ratification of the 2018-2021 Day Unit Tentative Agreement.” Expect ratification documents to arrive in the mail starting on June 14, 2019.

The Massachusetts Community College Council and its campus chapters allow faculty and staff to have a powerful and meaningful voice in the workplace, and we encourage you to belong.
The MCCC bargains the contracts that set the wages, benefits and working conditions for all of the faculty and staff in the bargaining unit. MCCC membership is the power behind our ability to create the working and learning conditions that you want in our community colleges.
The MCCC and its parent union the Massachusetts Teachers Association are fierce advocates for the community college system. Over recent years, the MCCC has improved full-time and part-time educators’ pay, benefits and working conditions, but we still have much to do in terms of making sure that everyone on our campuses is treated with respect and dignity. This means we will continue to fight for benefits such as health insurance and fair compensation for all.
We are also the voice calling for state funding so that students have affordable access to campuses with sufficient resources, programs, faculty and staff.
Union membership comes with some important protections and benefits. Members have far greater access to legal services, and only members can vote on contracts and elect the leadership they want to represent them.
Members can participate in trainings and conferences offered by the MTA and the National Education Association. Membership also provides access to hundreds of discounts on services and products available through MTA Benefits.
