Dear GCCCD Adjunct Faculty Members (Chairs: please forward this message to your adjunct faculty lists),

Just a friendly reminder of the paid office hour program we were able to win in previous negotiations remains available for college adjunct faculty who choose to participate.  The program only applies to the Fall and Spring semesters (not summer or intersession).

To be eligible for this program, you must:

  1. a) Submit this form(which is also attached) to your dean’s office no later than the second week of your assignment;
  2. b) Include in your course syllabi the dates and times of your office hours. Important:  if you have a remote or online assignment, the office hours for that class must be synchronous in nature via Zoom or similar platform.   How you propose to accomplish this should be stated in your syllabus as well.

If you teach at more than one college in the district, you will need to turn in a separate form to each dean at each college.

The agreement between the Guild and the District for this program fixes the pay rate at $40 per hour for the duration of the pilot program.  See the second attachment for more details on this program.  If you would like additional information on this program and other adjunct faculty benefits the Guild has won for its members, please visit this page on our website.

And one last thing as you are preparing your syllabi, please add this following statement encouraging all students to register to vote:

If you are not registered to vote, please register online today:

Making voter registration of all students part of our culture will reap great future rewards for us all.  Thanks in advance for your consideration of this small request!

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions regarding any of the foregoing.

In Solidarity,
