DCFA Ratifies First Contract

DCFA President Chris Curtis writes, “The DCFA Negotiation Team worked diligently with the Administrative Team over the past three years on Delta’s first complete collective bargaining agreement (CBA). On May 16, both teams reached a Tentative Agreement (TA). A presentation of the TA to the DCFA Executive Council took place on Friday, May 20, and the Council agreed with the Negotiation Team’s recommendation to approve the TA for a ratification vote by DCFA Members in Good Standing. Following a May 24 General Membership meeting reviewing the TA, the DCFA conducted a ratification vote from May 25 – May 31. As was reported to DCFA Members earlier, the TA was overwhelmingly approved by membership.”

The Delta College Board of Trustees unanimously passed approval for the CBA at their June meeting, and both the administration and DCFA negotiation teams are proofreading the final copy. The contract will go into effect on July 1, 2022.

The DCFA would like to thank Negotiation Team Chair, Matt Eyre, and the members of the Negotiation Team, Laura Dull, Chris Hausbeck, Donna Giuliani, Ray Lacina, Ryan Petersen, and Felicia Peters, along with our MEA representative Rondy Murray, for all their efforts in this significant achievement. Chris Curtis also served as an ex officio member.
