The College administration is committed to ensuring that we can continue to provide a quality, affordable education for our students today and into the future. With that in mind, we are trying to reach fair agreements with our unionized faculty and staff.
You may have heard that the Faculty & Staff Federation of Community College of Philadelphia (the union), which represents the College’s full-time faculty, adjunct faculty, and classified staff, recently took a strike authorization vote. While this does not mean that a strike will occur, the union’s communications state that there is a possibility of a strike starting as early as the week of March 11, 2019.
Our conversations with the union over the last three years include discussion of increasing our ability to respond quickly to the workforce needs of the community and the need to ensure that we are implementing best practices to ensure student success.
