Know Your Contract Flex Day session

Thursday 4/21, 1 – 2:30 p.m., on Zoom
Learn how our contract protects faculty so you can respond if you see colleagues’ rights being violated. Breakout sessions: 1) the Workload Pilot Program for full-timers & 2) Part-Timer rights.
We are asking members to wear AFT T-shirts to Flex Day and use our AFT Union Strong Zoom background in all virtual sessions you attend. Find our Zoom background here and instructions on how to change your background here.
Zoom links for all Flex Day sessions will be sent out by the Professional Development Committee at each college. Faculty who want to attend the Know Your Contract Flex Day session should register for it through their college’s Flex Day website.

Please RSVP for Week of Action events to receive Zoom links for the Flex Day session and to let us know if you need a t-shirt. You can RSVP here.

Looking forward to seeing you!
