CCC Teacher's Strike
I am a student at HWC, and from my perspective, it looks like this is an by the administration to cripple or kill the union for good. I am an older student, and I have a good relationship with many of the teachers there. If the administration's current contract proposal passes, I fear that the quality of education will plunge. The full time teachers have enough on their plates teaching 12 hrs. Requiring them to do 15 is unreasonable. Other issues include hikes in health premiums, and a 'publish or perish' clause that allows the administration to take action against any faculty member who does not publish. This a ridiculous catch-22. CCC does not have any research facilities. How are you going to publish if you cannot do research? The upshot of this is that the administration will be able to put anyone on the bubble for no reason. This would be a good way to get rid of older (read: higher paid) teachers.
Meanwhile, the administration sent an email out to all students warning that we are REQUIRED to attend classes being taught by scabs. I truly resent strongarm tactics like this being used against me. Most of the students will probably be intimidated into crosing the picket line in this way, unless a serious student movement forms in support of the teachers. I have already circulated a petition at HWC that asks the admin to give the teachers a fair contract. They deserve it. Students at Truman have also been active.
Many veteran teachers have already left. From what I understand, many of them are simply tired of the budget cuts and administrative hassles.
My 2 cents - if the teachers at CCC don't get a fair contract, steer clear!
