Latest Updates from your association
I just wanted to let everyone know that the attached MOUs have been signed by both the faculty association and the district. Both sides agreed during finals week, but the finalized versions just became available.
The first MOU is a health and safety MOU for fall 2020 regarding social distancing and sanitization guidelines for classes that may meet face to face. This includes guidelines and accommodations for classrooms, librarians, counseling appointments and office hours. The health and safety of our faculty, staff and students is a top priority for NVCFA.
The second attached MOU is one we have been working on for a long time - the expansion of personal necessity leave. Potential reasons for personal necessity leave have been expanded to allow for "imminent danger to the person or home of the unit member" in cases of natural disasters and "other personal matters or emergencies." We have also included a clause regarding specificity in order to protect the privacy of our faculty members. Changes to the existing article are written in red.
Please let me know if you have any questions about either of these documents. I hope everyone is having a restful break!
