The MCCC will soon begin the process of forming a team to negotiate a successor Day Collective Bargaining Agreement. The team negotiates with the employer over wages, hours, and conditions of employment. The current contract, although ratified last week, expires June 30, 2023. This is an opportunity for members to shape the working conditions affecting nearly 2000 Day Contract members for the next three years and beyond. The team will be made up of at least five (5) Day Contract union members plus the MCCC President and Vice President ex officio. Preferred applicants will represent the diversity of the collective Day bargaining unit that includes full-time faculty, part-time Day unit faculty, and all full and part-time professional staff.
Team members have traditionally been provided with reassigned time to allow them to meet regularly. Additionally, being on the Negotiations Team is counted as college service. Bargaining generally requires at least a one-year commitment.
Interested Day Unit MCCC Union Members should send a letter of intent and a CV (resume)to MCCC President, Claudine Barnes at email@example.com.
The following information should be included in your letter:
- Full name
- Non-college email
- Phone number
- Community College/Division/Department in which you do your Day Contract work
- Statement about why you would like to be on the Day Contract Negotiations Team. Also include any bargaining experience, leadership roles you have held, and any past or present union activities you have taken part in (e.g., attending chapter meetings, serving on the Contract Action Team, attending the Delegate Assembly, etc.)
Deadline: April 3, 2023
Applicants will be interviewed via Zoom on Friday, April 7, 2023.
Please contact me if you have any questions.
