Board of Trustees approves faculty contract

by Matt Robinson 0

The COC Board of Trustees approved a new contract between COC faculty and the Santa Clarita Community College District.

This comes after a tumultuous negotiation between the two sides.

Teachers rejected an offer in the spring. Negotiations continued over the summer and an agreement was finally reached earlier this month.

Wednesday’s vote makes the contract official.

“District administrators have had some very significant raises during that time. We feel that this is an expression of some appreciation about what we do and we are really about that,” COC instructor Chris Blakey said.
