What is a Strike Relief Fund Vote?

     A strike relief fund provides financial assistance for those striking faculty members for whom a strike and loss of income result in hardship in paying for basic necessities.

Why consider voting for a Strike Relief Fund?

     All faculty members can come together to provide support for our most financially vulnerable faculty members. The financial support provided by a Strike Relief Fund allows more faculty members to participate, strengthening our voice and our power.

How can I get more information?

     Attend one of our informational meetings. Invite AFA negotiators to your department.

AFA Analysis of the Sonoma County Junior College District’s Finances, Part 1

     The primary reason AFA and the District are at impasse is the Rank 10 formula, which has determined SRJC faculty salaries for the last four decades. Over the years and at the District’s request, AFA has agreed to reasonable changes in that methodology. Those changes have resulted in a current ranking of approximately 17th in the State for SRJC contract faculty salaries. AFA has also agreed to suspend Rank 10 in times of crisis. But the District now seeks to end Rank 10 permanently, which led AFA to analyze the District’s data to see whether Rank 10 is creating a crisis now. This is Part 1 of AFA’s analysis.

From the SRJC Faculty to the Board of Trustees

     Approximately 100 faculty members attended the December 12 Board of Trustees meeting. Several made public comments on faculty concerns about the quality of the institution, our programs, faculty roles in shared governance, salary, and privacy violations. Your colleagues' comments--those that were actually delivered, as well as those that were prepared but for which there was insufficient time--are posted here.
     AFA encourages the faculty to attend all Board meetings, to speak out on matters of concern to the faculty, and to share those comments with the College community via email and posting on our web site.
     Board meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month. Spring 2018 meeting dates:

March 13
April 10

AFA Press Release--Feb. 13, 2018


     Santa Rosa, California, Tuesday, February 13, 2018 -- Santa Rosa Junior College (SRJC) faculty are fighting a proposed pay cut while top college executives enjoy recent double-digit pay raises.
     It’s a familiar story: A college faces budget woes, but instead of going after the ever-growing and expensive layer of administration, the salaries of the rank-and-file faculty members are on the chopping block.

The Next 100 Years Starts with Us!

     We Want a Fair Contract:
     We are working for a fair contract that preserves sustainable pay and faculty professionalism. The District's latest proposal attempts to cut our pay and reduce our autonomy, which will adversely affect our students and the quality of education at SRJC.

RANK 10: A proven formula for student success

     Rank 10, which was established over 30 years ago, was originally proposed by the Board of Trustees as a way of recognizing the hard work and excellence of the SRJC faculty.

Administrators: 9% RAISE
     Faculty: 3% CUT

     The District's upper management recommended a management salary study, which resulted in an AVERAGE raise of 9%, with the highest-level administrators receiving double-digit percentage increases in January 2017.

The Faculty Wants a Fair Contract

     This year, SRJC celebrates its 100th Anniversary, and the faculty negotiations team has been hard at work to ensure that the Legacy of Excellence at SRJC continues for the next 100 years.
