Fair_contract_now!_(2)

The Peralta Federation of Teachers (Oakland, CA) is fighting for a fair contract. However, the fight is more that just about wages. The union that represents faculty, nurses, counselors, and librarians in the Peralta Community College District is in a labor dispute with management over ~$600K, a tiny fraction of the District's budget. That money would cover the cost of part-time parity which is an effort to pay part-time faculty equal to full-time faculty with the same experience for the same work. In other words, equal pay for equal work. Additionally, PFT is asking for a 3-year contract that includes a Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) as it is granted by the state of California and doesn't cost the District anything. Yet, the District is refusing to meet these minimal demands. PFT is committed to improving working conditions for our educators to improve learning conditions for our students.
