Dear AFT Guild GCCCD Members,

In stark contrast to my email message below sent last Friday, I’m pleased to report that in our negotiation meeting with the District yesterday they withdrew their proposal of May 9th.

Clearly, the 19 faculty members who spoke at last Tuesday’s Board of Trustee meeting, along with the many other faculty who turned out in support, had an impact with the Board and the Chancellor directing their team to change course.

In case you missed it, below is the clip from the Board meeting of our speakers. Starts at 1:48:32 and ends at 2:28:25.


We are now working with the District in an attempt to reach a short term salary settlement while we continue to negotiate through the remainder of our contract proposal. Stay tuned to your inbox for updates between now and the end of the semester.

Thank you all for your continued support!

In Solidarity,
Jim Mahler, President
AFT Guild, Local 1931
