FACT: From 2010 to 2022, SMCCCD’s revenues increased by over 100%, from $133M in 2010 to $269M in 2022 (unadjusted for inflation). Meanwhile, average FT faculty salaries only increased by ~30%.

FAIRNESS? The District has the money to agree to AFT’s economic proposals, including fair raises for all faculty PLUS:

  • 85% pay parity for part-time faculty
  • Parental leave
  • Lecture-lab parity
  • Part-time healthcare

…and more!

Why aren’t faculty needs a financial priority for the district?

EQUITY! The District tasks faculty with making their equity goals a reality for students. By investing in faculty working conditions, the District will also be investing in student success.

It is unacceptable that SMCCCD faculty are not compensated commensurate with their value to both students and the district.

“I am a solo parent and part-time instructor at Skyline and College of San Mateo. I have won awards for creating anti-racist, equitable curricula for our students, while at the same time struggling to pay my bills, get access to health care, and care for my young daughter. Access to health care and equitable pay would provide the stability that my family desperately needs. I am going above and beyond for our students, why won’t the district provide basic equity for me?”
