Welcome to AFT Local 1828
The Ventura County Federation of College Teachers. AFT, Local 1828, is a labor union representing over 1,200 faculty members of the Ventura County Community College District who serve approximately 32,000 students enrolled in the district's three colleges - Moorpark, Oxnard and Ventura.
On June 30, 2019, the collective bargaining agreement between the Ventura County Community College District and the faculty represented by the AFT Local 1828 expired. The AFT Local 1828 has been diligently attempting to reach a fair settlement with the district since March 2019. The starting salary for an entry-level faculty member in the district ranks 70th out of 72 college districts in the state of California. This, in a county which is ranked as the 10th most expensive county in which to live, behind Los Angeles, Orange and Santa Barbara counties.
In spite of the AFT Local 1828's good-faith efforts to raise the faculty salaries to a level that is comparable to surrounding districts, the district recently unilaterally declared impasse.
