Dear faculty colleagues,

1. Please tell us your experience requesting accommodations for Spring 2022

The Covid pandemic and the District’s plans for a full return to on-campus instruction and student services in Spring 2022 have led a number of faculty to request accommodations, either due to a medical condition of their own or due to a situation in their family or household (for example, living with someone who is immunocompromised).

If you have requested accommodations and are willing to share your experience, AFT would like to hear from you. We would like to hear both from faculty who have obtained accommodations and those who have faced difficulties getting accommodations, to give us a fuller understanding of how the District is handling the accommodations process. You can email from your personal ( email, or call Marianne at 650.416.6339 to share your experience of the accommodations process.

2. Share your health and safety concerns with AFT anonymously

You may have seen that we plan to discuss health and safety concerns at our union’s November Membership Meeting, which will take place this coming Wednesday (11/10) from 2:30 to 5 p.m. at this Zoom link: In campus breakout groups, we will ask members to share concerns regarding the District’s plans for a full Spring 2022 reopening and strategize for solutions; however, we also recognize that some faculty will prefer to share safety concerns anonymously. If you would like to voice a safety concern anonymously, please use this form. Note that we will be discussing these concerns at the meeting.

Thank you very much for sharing your experiences and concerns with AFT so we can support all faculty.

In solidarity,


Marianne Kaletzky, Executive Secretary
