City College of San Francisco reached a tentative agreement with its faculty union Thursday following a year of negotiations.
Instructors, counselors and librarians will receive at least a 6.7 percent salary increase over a three-year period. The faculty will vote on the offer in September. If accepted, the college could avoid a faculty strike. Some of the salary offer, however, is conditional on enrollment growth at the college, which has declined in the accreditation crisis with CCSF's accreditor, the Accrediting Commission for Community and Junior Colleges.
“This contract is a first step in providing faculty at City College the resources needed to rebuild the college and preserve our high-quality programs,” said AFT 2121 President Tim Killikelly.
