CPFA is seeking to expand and strengthen partnerships with allied organizations and local faculty unions in order to amplify the voice of part-time faculty at the Capitol, starting with an expansion of ongoing discussions with both the California Governor and Chancellor’s Offices.
Any local bargaining unit can join the statewide effort to improve the working conditions for all California Community College (CCC) part-time faculty (PTF) by becoming a Contract Member (CM) of CPFA.
CPFA achieves its statewide objectives by promoting legislation that directly protects and improves working conditions for CCC PTF and the learning environment for our students.
Since CPFA is an independent, non-union, PTF-run organization, the process of proposing or opposing bills that impact PTF is far more efficient and streamlined than any other statewide entity claiming to support PTF. Over the years, CPFA has built a strong rapport with legislators and their staffers in Sacramento, and a track record of leveraging it to support important legislative solutions that impact PTF across the state, such as the bill for pay-parity and the bill that raised the PTF workload cap from 60% to 67% of a full-time load.
Contract membership in CPFA is sustained by a majority of your union members opting to contribute just $1 of every paycheck from each PTF member in their district (That is less than a cup of coffee!).
Contract membership earns you a seat at the table with our Executive Council (EC) with full EC privileges, each contract member has full voting rights and eligibility to run for leadership positions, so you can inform CPFA policies and strategies. Contract membership also supports independent, PTF-focused events and publications, such as our monthly eNewsletter, bi-annual journal, annual conference, and workshops, among other activities. But wait! There’s still more! When you become a CM of CPFA, we will prominently display your union ad (for free!) on our website and in our publications. CPFA’s purpose is to empower PTF at every level!
