    Unfortunately, our local Illinois Education Association office in Palatine is closed due to the pandemic, but messages (847.359.0300) are forwarded to us. For an emergency situation, you may contact the HCAFA President via email (hcafapresident@gmail.com) or IEA’s central office in Springfield at https://ieanea.org/ieaconnect/ for telephone and live chat during their limited weekday hours as well as the email option. 

negotiation

HCAFA negotiates with representatives of Harper College for every element of our contract.  The process is complicated, very detailed, and begins with input from our members as to the elements they like to be pursued.  Our current and past contracts are available at this website under the “documents” tab.  

Our current contract expires at the beginning of the 2021-2022 academic year.  Both teams —  HCAFA and the college administration – have expressed a strong interest in a sense of cooperation in order to ultimately produce a fair contract for both parties.

HCAFA will make every effort to keep our membership informed throughout this process.  Since email will be the primary contact means, please insure that we have your most current personal, non-Harper email.  Route those to Janice Cutler, our Membership Records chair, at hcafamembership@gmail.com.  Negotiation information as well as other professional information is also available at our Facebook page, HCAFA – Harper College Adjunct Faculty Association.  It is a closed group, so just request joining and we will certainly open that to our members.
