If you see some adults marching around Columbus State Community College, they’re professors who are pissed off their employer won’t hook them up with contracts.
Yesterday, several CSCC professors picketed outside the college between classes to inform people about how the college is not treating their staff with fairness or respect. NBC4i reports that these full-time faculty members’ contracts have been up for months and that some professors believe CSCC is giving priority to temporary part-time people.
Here is part of CSCC’s statement about the contracts:
Columbus State’s approach with our faculty is in alignment with our commitment to student success, workforce development, competitive compensation, and making sure our people, processes and systems are geared towards student success. We are in near full agreement on all contract terms, mutually compromising on our positions in many areas and acknowledging the hard work of our faculty and their role in ensuring a successful future for our students. All benefit and compensation-related provisions have been implemented, including a year-one average 5.2 percent annual salary increase and also professional development funding.
