AB 1690, the bill which calls for setting a minimum standard for job security for California Adjunct Community College instructors has made it out of the California Senate Appropriations Committee, and now moves on the floor of the House, the Senate, and then the governor’s desk.
It is highly expected that it will clear the House and Senate, but then nothing is ever certain.
That’s where you come in.
Please sign this petition to Senate Pro Tem Kevin de Leon asking him to help AB 1690 pass off the Senate floor and go to the Governor’s desk… We don’t know if we will ever get this chance again, and the Non-Tenured faculty at community colleges can’t wait any longer for these basic job rights!
Again, if you’re not familiar with the language in AB 1690, here it is:
Let’s make this happen.
A “Good” Adjunct
P.S.: I’m now in the process of preparing a letter to the governor, which I’ll be putting out here, among other places. Look for it.
Here is a link to a sample governor’s letter: AB%201690%20Letter%20To%20The%20Governor%20Template
will pin this at Precarious Faculty FB page — just sent something to Academic Professionals United and getting ready to hit Con Job
Thanks Vanessa, and thanks for the feedback on the toolkit. I’m six kinds of busy right now, but I am working with John to roll out discussion of the toolkit (which I’ll be adding to) on the blog.
Hi, adjunct from San Francisco. The link to the petition seems to be dead, any way to get a fresh one? I think I can get some support here in the City by the Bay
The bill has reached the governor. Now we need to petition the governor to sign the bill.I’ve added a link to a file that contains a letter to the governor template. help yourself.
