I am honored to return to the position of Chief Negotiator of AFT Local 1828 and look forward to representing the dedicated and incredible faculty of the Ventura County Community College District. Although negotiations ended a few months ago, we return to the bargaining table next semester because our agreement expires on June 30, 2019.
The AFT Local 1828 Executive Council has begun the recruitment process for new negotiations team members. We need faculty to serve on our negotiations team for our next round of negotiations. Faculty negotiations team meetings will begin in October and face-to-face meetings with management are scheduled to begin no later than March, 2019. Negotiations is a collaborative effort and this is an excellent opportunity for faculty to serve their colleagues and to become involved in the bargaining process. We need representation from both full-time and part-time faculty members from each campus. New team members and perspectives are needed and welcome! Release time is available to those who serve.
If you are interested in serving on the negotiations team please send a brief letter of interest to me at email@example.com.
The deadline to be considered is Thursday, September 20. Thank you for your consideration.
