A two-year wage-and-benefit agreement with instructors and a resolution declaring March as Women’s History Month are on the agenda when Solano Community College leaders meet tonight in Fairfield.
The seven-member governing board likely will approve a $1.6 million agreement, retroactive to July 1 and in effect until June 30, 2019, with the faculty chapter represented by the Community College Association/California Teachers Association and the National Education Association.
According to agenda documents, it amounts to a 4 percent wage hike for full-time and adjunct instructors and counselors as part of a restructured salary schedule.
Additionally, the contract calls for “language” to address online classes and faculty in “coordinator positions” (the latter not defined); and the right of adjunct faculty to interview for a full-time position.
The agreement’s cost to the college does not include health and welfare benefits.
