First contact with the contract

As promised, I tolds you I’d keep an eye on our CCC website for the new contract and…

It’s been uploaded! Here is the link to the Collective Bargaining Agreement 7/16/13 – 7/15/18

I’ve not had time to compare it with the contract that just expired, but feel free to give it a glance.And feel free to share your initial comments. Or take your time –  you gots 5 years.

Any contact with the contract?

I gots this nagging concern about our new contract. I’ve had it since the day I voted. That was months ago.

We are now days away from the expiration of our current contract – July 15, 2013.

I’ve yet to see or hear what changes, if any, are being made to the new contract that will go into effect July 16, 2013.

Has anypeep heard anything about the AGREEMENT Between Board of Trustees of Community College District No. 508, County of Cook and State of Illinois and the Cook County College Teachers Union, Local 1600 AFT, AFL-CIO, Chicago, Illinois (Faculty and Training Specialists)?

I know union reps are busy in Springfield, but it shouldn’t be an excuse to put this matter off. It’s been kicked down the road one too many times.
