Negotiations for Next Contract Are Proceeding

We will make every attempt possible to keep you informed of our progress.  We know that for most adjuncts, the main concerns in negotiations are salary and benefits.  However, there are many other very important aspects to our contract.  (We hope you’ll look at your contract and become aware of all of the possible topics there are to bargain.)  HCAFA and the Harper Administration have met 4 times since the initial Intetest-Based Bargaining all-day training.  (We meet for 4 hours every Friday.)  Both teams have expressed a strong interest in cooperating with each other to  to make the adjunct contract better than it is. 

In an effort to develop trust, we  began the process by working on language issues–those issues that have changed since the signing of the last contract:  Some of the issues were the result of grievances filed on behalf of adjuncts; others were the joint outcome of discussions at relationship meetings between HCAFA and the college.
