Our second mediation meeting was held on Thursday, February 14, 2019, and after not meeting since January 9th, AAFMCC came to the table with fresh ideas for paid time off (PTO) and wages.
Unfortunately, even though it was Valentine’s Day, The College was not showing the love.
The College refused all of AAFMMC’s suggestions, and by doing so, The College continues to deny adjunct faculty the respect equity we deserve. The Bargaining Team will be meeting next week and will inform our members of our next move soon.
Meanwhile, AAFMCC is currently circulating a petition, requesting that The College pay us a wage that is comparable to what other adjuncts at local community colleges earn. Be on the lookout for our Organizer Nicholas Zastrow, as well as other members of the Bargaining Team, who are walking around campus and collecting signatures.
Now is the time for all of us to be seen and heard! Please sign the petition, encourage your colleagues to do the same, and if you have some time to help with the petition drive, please contact Nicholas (313-655-4815/
Sitting idly by with fingers crossed will not get The College's attention, but hopefully our voice, our presence, and our persistence will!
Today AAFMCC is at the Bargaining Table for Mediation Session #2.
We'll be sharing bargaining updates at several membership meetings during the first week of March. Details coming soon.
