Success: Adjuncts get a raise and a bonus!

We’re sorry for the confusion about the 3% raise that was posted on the AdFac website and in our newsletter but wasn’t included in your paycheck this fall, and we thank you for your patience. We negotiated with the District for a better deal than the 3% and we think you will be satisfied with the results.  

The AdFac Negotiations Team reached a tentative agreement with the North Orange County Community College District. This agreement covers the 2016-2017 academic year for salary only. District Trustees approved it on Nov. 8.

Article 11 (Salary)

Salary shall remain unchanged except for the following amendment(s):

2016-2017 Academic Year

    Off-Schedule Salary Adjustment for the Fall 2016 Semester and Trimester

    Unit members who taught credit classes or performed counseling or librarian services at the colleges during the Fall 2016 semester will be paid an off-schedule bonus equal to five point six percent (5.6%). This payment will be computed by calculating Fall 2016 semester service at five point six percent (5.6%) using the salary schedule rates in effect August 22, 2016.

    Unit Members who taught non-credit classes or performed counseling services in the School of Continuing Education during the Fall 2016 non-credit trimester shall be paid an off-schedule bonus equal to five point six percent (5.6%). This payment will be computed by calculating Fall 2016 trimester service at five point six percent (5.6%) using the salary schedule rates in effect September 12, 2016.

    All off-schedule salary adjustments will be subject to retirement based upon member type (Classic/PEPRA).

Spring 2017 Semester/Winter 2017 Trimester

                An across-the-board salary increase of three point two five percent (3.25%) will be applied to Adjunct Faculty salary schedules A and B effective January 29, 2017, and to Schedule C effective January 8, 2017.

Our Executive Board overwhelmingly approved the tentative agreement and so have you! Thanks to your AdFac Negotiations Team:  Pete Christenson; Manjit Grewall; Denny Konshak; Catherine Whitsett, Chair
