Before the contract ratification vote, in which all faculty can vote to either accept or reject the tentative agreement (TA) with the District, AFT 1493 will be holding an information session to answer your questions and explain any facets of the TA that seem unclear to you.

Because the timeline is tight, we will be holding one information session, which will also be streamed live on AFT1493’s Facebook page. All faculty are encouraged to attend if they can, and those who cannot be there, please email your questions or concerns to Teeka James, Secretary and Past-President, by Tuesday morning  (8/29) and we’ll make sure they’re addressed.

Information session: Tuesday, August 29, 2017, at Skyline College, Hosting Gallery, Building 4, from 2:00 to 3:00

Here is the link to the complete TA and here is the link to our summary. Please take time to review it before attending the information session or before emailing Teeka your questions so that you can be sure to fully understand what you  will be voting on.

On Tuesday morning, we’ll send out the link for the live streaming of the session, and on Wednesday, we’ll send out the voting link and instructions.

As always, thank you for all your support and encouragement over the long haul of this round of contract negotiations. AFT has received many, many notes of thanks since reaching the tentative agreement; our response has been this: YOU did this. The union belongs to you.
