Faculty at Saddleback, Irvine Valley OK Pact

April 01, 1998|ROBERT OURLIAN

Instructors at Saddleback College and Irvine Valley College ratified a new contract Tuesday.

The faculty voted 104 to 86 to approve the contract, which was hammered out over several months. The breakdown was about 55% to 45%.

The faculty contract is with the South Orange County Community College District, which administers the two campuses serving about 33,000 students.

Administrators planned a news conference this afternoon to discuss particulars of the contract.

Bargaining was prolonged by the colleges' fiscal problems, which have placed the district under a financial watch by state community college officials.

The final version of the contract reportedly contains no first-year raise for the full-time faculty members but includes increases for subsequent years.
