As always, September was an action filled month filing grievances for member rights, advocating for member benefits, and answering a daily flood of questions including those pertaining to retirement. Hopefully you have read the NCCFT post about our meeting with Dr. Dolan and our commitment to the need to replace full-time faculty.
Election Buddy is now in place so look for the upcoming announcement regarding the Promotion and Tenure Committee election. This will be the first time the NCCFT is running an electronic election, and we are excited. Petitions for the P&T Committee are available and due back to the NCCFT by noon on October 13. You will be alerted when the ballots and statements are being sent out. Be sure to check your Junk Email if you don’t find it in your Inbox.
Ongoing conversations with Chief Roddini, Dr. Dolan and other Administrators regarding safety issues continue to be a priority. This is an item that should be also addressed at the BOT meeting so we urge concerned members to sign up to speak as we all work together to establish a safety protocol for the campus community that addresses our concerns.
The NCCFT leadership serves on the Presidential Search Committee as well as on the Academic VP search. Meetings for both searches took place this past week. Comments will be shared at the upcoming General Union Meeting.
The NCCFT Executive Committee recently met with several leaders from the student body. The informal meeting was informative and engaging as both sides shared similar concerns impacting both students and faculty at NCC.
We enjoyed meeting with new faculty at the NCCFT New Member luncheon. It is always exciting to see new faculty join the NCCFT, and we welcome them to join our committees.
The NCCFT will continue our support for the NEST through our ongoing effort to collect food, not only at the NCCFT luncheons but also at the upcoming NCCFT General Union Meeting. NCCFT President Debbie DeSanto completed training as a NEST volunteer during the summer. The food pantry is providing a much needed service for the campus community.
Please join us at the next BOT meeting on Tuesday, October 13.
As we stand united, we stand strong.
The NCCFT Executive Committee
