May 2021 Advocate: Faculty ratify new contract

Faculty ratify new three-year contract!
97% vote Yes!

In voting from Monday, May 3 through Thursday, May 6, District faculty overwhelmingly ratified the Tentative Agreement for a new multiyear contract.  371 members, or 40% of our 930-person bargaining unit, voted in the ratification election. Of these, 361 people (97%) voted YES to ratify the contract. Five people (1%) voted no, and five people (1%) abstained.

The Tentative Agreement will now be brought before the SMCCCD Board of Trustees next Wednesday, May 12, for their approval, and if approved by the Board, it will become the contract governing faculty working in the District from the beginning of July 2019 through the end of June 2022.
