MPCTA’s negotiating team is very near an agreement with the District. The bargaining teams met until 6pm yesterday. Currently the agreement is being drafted into a single document by Jon Knolle. I anticipate that the MPCTA team will sign it on Monday of next week. However, we agreed to expedite the faculty voting process, so the the Board of Trustees can vote on the agreement this month. In order to do that, we will need to begin the two week voting period on Tuesday 9/10. We will hold informational meetings on Monday, September 9 in HU202 from 12-1pm and on September 13 in SS102 from 12-1pm. If necessary, we can schedule additional meetings.
In order to vote on the agreement, you must be a member of MPCTA– you may submit membership forms by Monday 9/9/2019. The membership form is attached. Ballot boxes will be located at the LTC reference desk and in the administration building lobby. The complete agreement will be sent out via email once we have received it, along with a break down of changes. Please try to come to the meetings, if you can. As always, please let me know if you have any questions.
