Time for Districts to Certify Compliance with SB 1379 is Near

We previously reported that SB 1379 added section 87482.3 to the Education Code.  This new section imposes an affirmative obligation on districts to bargain part-time faculty reemployment rights as a condition of receiving Student Success and Support Program (SSSP) funding, whether or not the bargaining unit requests to do so.  The provisions of SB 1379 apply to SSSP funds allocated to community college districts on or after July 1, 2017.

In light of these new requirements, the California Community Colleges Chancellor’s Office sent a form to all community college districts asking each district to certify that it is in compliance with Education Code Section 87482.3.  On the form, each district must indicate its collective bargaining status with part-time, temporary faculty members.  A District representative and the Exclusive Representative for Part-Time, Temporary Faculty must sign the form and submit it to the Chancellor’s office by no later than July 14, 2017.

If you have any questions about your District’s compliance or the Chancellor’s form, please contact our Los Angeles, San Francisco, Fresno, San Diego, or Sacramento office.
