Minutes from Union Executive Committee Meeting

Present – Dennis Cecere, Peggy Codding, Peter Cokkinias, Marti Epstein, Danny Harrington, Jeff Perry, Wendy Rolfe, Jackson Schultz, David Scott, and Will Silvio.

  1. Wendy made a motion to accept the minutes from the previous meeting. Danny seconded and the vote was unanimous to accept the minutes.
  2. We discussed blind students in the writing division, scores, and adjusting materials for the students. The attitude of the college has been to place the onus on the faculty member and say good luck. There needs to be a policy for how faculty are compensated for the additional materials and time that are needed for these students. Jackson will discuss the specifics with the department chair as a start. We also will bring this up at the next management meeting.
  3. Management has agreed to talk with the Union over the Master’s Program starting on the Boston campus in the fall of 2015. Jackson has spoken with a person in Valencia regarding the way they are running that program. We discussed the specifics or lack of. 

    Any faculty teaching on the Boston campus will fall under our contract. If management is not willing to work amicably we will file an injunction to prevent the program to start in a timely manner.
