Hello, Part-Time Faculty!
So much has happened in this term, I will only cover the highlights.
As you know, we have provisions in our CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement) offering Part-Time faculty the same plans at the same cost as those offered our Full-Time colleagues. Even though it was not possible to begin implementation of the healthcare benefits provisions this term, the Guild is working with the District to take advantage of the 100% reimbursement program in the fall
Over the years, the Guild has worked hard to secure Part-Time faculty rights! Please familiarize yourself with your rights at GCC by reviewing the CBA (Collective Bargaining Agreement):
As we near the end of the term, many of us will be (re)filing for unemployment benefits. This is a right guaranteed by the 1989 Cervisi Decision because Part-Time faculty do not have a “reasonable assurance” of employment, even if we are scheduled with an assignment. Part-Time Faculty are “at will” employees, and our employment can be cancelled at any time due to low enrollment or to fill load for a contract faculty member.
This spring, when applying for unemployment, the dates of the term are February 21 through June 17, 2023. Your “supervisor” is the Vice President of Human Resources, Brittany Grice, and her telephone number is 818-240-1000.
Remember, even if your chair has you scheduled for an assignment in the summer or fall, that assignment can be cancelled at any time. You are unemployed as of June 18.
Two items of note:
As before, I refer you to the ContingentWorld website where the Chair of the CFT Part-Time Committee keeps recent instructions of how to complete the application. It has been updated to include EDD’s recent egregious attempts to scare recipients from their rightful benefits. You have a right to unemployment benefits!
This summer, I will be busy helping Professor Paul Sherman with the Study Abroad Summer Program in Indonesia. It will be the first time I return to international travel since the pandemic, and I am anxious to get back! I’ll let you know all about it in the fall!
As always, I encourage you to try to make it to Commencement. Many of our students who will be graduating want to share their excitement with those of us who helped them succeed. Congratulations to them, and kudos to you for helping them graduate!
Don’t forget to have a great summer!
