On Thursday March 23, 2020 the VCCCD Board of Trustees held a special board meeting. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the meeting was held via Zoom conference and permitted only public comment by email. Participants were asked to submit written comments to the board recording secretary prior to the meeting and during public comment prior to the closed session the chairperson would read a select number of emailed comments. The AFT Local 1828 encouraged all faculty to send email comments to the board expressing their thoughts on Board's desire to continue the negotiations/factfinding process during this global health emergency. We have archived the comments here to share with everyone. Here is a link to the statement sent by the AFT Negotiations team on behalf of the faculty.
