Clark College Faculty Vote to Authorize StrikeDecember 10, 2019 |
Instructors at Clark College could go on strike next month if administration doesn’t agree to long-overdue catch-up raises. In a Dec. 7 meeting attended by as many as 300 part-time and full-time faculty, the vote was unanimous to give the union executive committee authority to call a strike.
Clark College Association for Higher Education (CCAHE), an affiliate of the Washington Education Association teachers union, represents 550 faculty members at the college, including 188 who are full-time and 363 who are part-time. They’ve been in contract bargaining for 14 months, and the two sides have been in mediation since June.
