Picketing Resources for Faculty Members

Legal right to wear buttons, show signs on campus, and distribute flyers.

     AFA is providing the following information based on the advice of its legal counsel:
     Non-disruptive picketing and distributing informational flyers in public places is a protected conduct. “Non-disruptive” means that it does not interfere with class sessions or other College business. Do not block entrances and exits to buildings.
     Wearing union buttons or pins is also a protected employee right. There is a possibility that some people could interpret the wearing of buttons and conducting conversations/discussions during class time, office hours, or other scheduled student contact duties as a violation of Ed Code 7055, so AFA advises against this practice. Outside of scheduled student contact times, faculty members may wear buttons and have conversations with students and colleagues.
     In addition to non-disruptive picketing, faculty members may display signs on office doors/windows, on bulletin boards, and in car windows.

Q&A Regarding Negotiations Impasse

Q. What is the situation in negotiations between the Junior College District and AFA?
A. We are at impasse, which is a status determined by the California Public Employment Relations Board, or PERB. It means that PERB has determined that continuing normal negotiations would be futile.

Q. How did we get here?
A. The District presented AFA with a take-it-or-leave-it package in November. AFA was willing to negotiate items in the package on an individual basis but not to accept the entire package, so the District asked AFA to join it in declaring impasse. AFA declined, so the District unilaterally submitted to PERB a request for determination of impasse. PERB concurred.

From the SRJC Faculty to the Board of Trustees

     Approximately 100 faculty members attended the December 12 Board of Trustees meeting. Several made public comments on faculty concerns about the quality of the institution, our programs, faculty roles in shared governance, salary, and privacy violations. Your colleagues' comments--those that were actually delivered, as well as those that were prepared but for which there was insufficient time--are posted here.
     AFA encourages the faculty to attend all Board meetings, to speak out on matters of concern to the faculty, and to share those comments with the College community via email and posting on our web site.
     Board meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month. Spring 2018 meeting dates:

January 9
February 13
March 13
April 10
May 8
