Community College of Philadelphia makes new offer to faculty and staff union with hopes of reaching contract agreement
Philadelphia Business Journal
Community College of Philadelphia on Friday unveiled what it called its best and final offer to the union representing its teachers and staffers who have been working under their previous contract since August.
The president of the Faculty and Staff Federation of Community College of Philadelphia said the union was considering how to respond and disagreed with some of CCP’s characterizations of its offer.
CCP has been negotiating since January with the union, which represents 1,167 of CCP’s full- and part-time faculty members and 232 of its classified or hourly staff.
Under its offer, CCP said, union members would see their wages frozen in the first year of the contract. Over the next four years, the college said, wages would rise 10.5 percent for full-time and most part-time faculty and 10.95 percent for classified staff.
