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.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and Governor Newsome's "stay at home" order we have postponed all informational picketing and rally events until further notice. Please check back once we have emerged from the current health emergency.
On Monday March 23, building management closed the union office building to all personnel until further notice. During this difficult time we will be attempting to maintain business as usual as much as possible; however, because this is a very fluid situation and a public health crisis, our staff may not be immediately available to meet you. All members are encouraged to try and resolve all issues by email. In the event you must meet with a member of our staff or executive council, please call our office and a member of our staff will get back to you as soon as possible.
