Community College of Philadelphia’s Administration and the Faculty and Staff Federation reached three tentative agreements on a new labor contract in the late evening hours of April 3, 2019. The agreements were reached with the help of Richard Lazer, Philadelphia’s deputy mayor for labor, and state mediator Bill Gross. The tentative agreements with the College’s support staff and full-time and part-time faculty members must be ratified by the union membership to take effect.
“With a lot of time and effort on everybody’s part, we were able to come up with a successful resolution.” said Dr. Judith Gay, the Vice President for Strategic Initiatives and Chief of Staff.
Dr. Donald Guy Generals, president of the College added, “This proposed contract puts the needs of CCP's diverse students first and enables the College to expand programs and provide grander opportunities. In the end, our shared desire to help students enabled us to find common ground. Community College of Philadelphia is stronger today as a direct result of this vigorous debate and dialogue. This is a great day for the entire City.”
