CFA members are hosting a chairs-only faculty rights question-and-answer Open House February 17.
Chairs can drop in anytime between 1 and 2 p.m. to listen in or ask questions.
“To have our faculty who are Unit 3 members be chairs is a powerful and important position. As chairs – and as faculty – they understand the realities, experiences, and needs of their students and their co-workers,” said Margarita Berta-Ávila, CFA Associate Vice President, North, and professor of education, teaching credentials at Sacramento State. “This is an opportunity to learn and to ask questions about the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) to ensure true equity and access for our faculty members, specifically our lecturers who are in the most precarious situations.
“To be a chair is not easy. You are in a situation where you are faculty, but you also have pressure from administration. This is one of the most important positions to assert yourself as faculty to advocate for your colleagues and students.”
