Dear MSCA Faculty and Librarians:
At 11:15 this morning, the governor
signed the supplemental budget bill that contained the funding for our 2004-2007
collective bargaining agreement. Funding for the 2003-2006 MCCC contract was
also contained in this budget bill.
The funding is now considered "enacted"
and the provisions of our agreement that were contingent on enactment are
now in effect. For those faculty and librarians who chose Alternative One
under the post-tenure review process, the final portfolio deadline will be
at least 45 days from this date. These faculty and librarians will receive
an official notification of the deadline from the local campus vice president
for academic affairs.
Again, I do not know how long it
will take for the colleges to implement the pay increases under the agreement,
but I will be sure to notify you when I have received confirmation of these
Happy holidays to you and yours,
and best wishes for 2006 -
Patricia V. Markunas,
