Dual Unit Unfair Labor Practice Resolved

The issue of dual unit membership arose when HCAFA was negotiating its first contract with Harper.  At that time, adjunct faculty librarians and counselors who had also been teaching credit-hour classes could not understand why they were barred from being considered eligible for membership in the adjunct teachers’ unit.  HCAFA argued that those adjuncts (as well as any other adjuncts who were serving in two different capacities at Harper College) were performing the functions and meeting the eligibility requirements of both groups, but were effectively being denied the rights that should have been theirs if they had been allowed dual unit membership. 

Despite numerous discussions, HCAFA and the Harper administration were unsuccessful in their efforts to agree on a solution satisfactory to both.  After many years of effort, HCAFA filed a ULP, an unfair labor practice, with the Illinois Educational Labor Relations Board.  The IELRB issued a complaint to Harper College.  As a result, both HCAFA and Harper consented to work together to come up with a joint resolution.

For more information on the details of the resolution, please see the November HCAFA newsletter.
