Labor Management Team

Article 2 - "Consultation" provides as follows: The College's representatives shall meet with UFF-Seminole representatives to discuss matters pertinent to the implementation or administration of this Agreement, College actions affecting terms and conditions of employment, or any other mutually agreeable matters. Such meetings shall occur by mutual agreement of parties, but not less than once each academic year.

The Labor Management Team is a joint working group of Union and College representatives that performs the consultative tasks described in Article 2. While a minimum of one meeting per academic year is required, the Team endeavors to meet on a much more frequent and regular basis to ensure good communication and to provide a forum for problem solving when concerns arise. The Team does not supplant either the bargaining or grievance process. It is anticipated that through good communication and collective effort, the Team may assist in streamlining bargaining and reducing the number of grievances.

Collegewide Continuing Contract Review Committee (CCCRC)

The CCCRC is a committee established by section 13.4 C. of the Collective Bargaining Agreement.  The committee is tasked with reviewing applications for continuing contract from tenure track faculty.  The committee votes to either endorse or not endorse the application and forwards its recommendation to the Vice President of Academic Affairs.  If the recommendation is “non-endorsement,” the committee may recommend an additional annual contract with an improvement plan.

In accordance with the CBA, the committee members serve two year terms.    The committee members for the current academic year are as follows:
