Union Fights Cuts To FT Faculty Overload Pay That College Prez Wants To Give to PTers

By Joe Piasecki

Faculty and administrators are at an impasse as Pasadena City College seeks to forge a new teacher contract to replace one that expired in June.

The administration’s proposal would limit the earning potential of veteran instructors and switch to a trimester system. PCC President Mark Rocha said the changes would make classes available to as many students as possible in a time of crippling state budget cuts.

Leaders of the PCC Faculty Assn. have not come to the negotiating table. They say their opposition to the administration plan is a principled stand against balancing the budget on the backs of teachers while reducing student access to classes.

In 2011, full-time PCC professors earned more than $3.9 million in extra pay for taking on additional class assignments, according to salary data released by the college.

With those and other extra earnings, including compensation for taking on larger classes, 63 teachers boosted their annual pay beyond $130,000 in 2011. PCC’s highest-paid teacher made $196,000 last year, not including benefits.

Facing at least $10 million in budget cuts next year, college leaders propose limiting the number of extra classes that full-time faculty can opt to teach.
