Regular or contract members assigned to 11-month or 12-month positions shall receive assignments in accordance with the provisions of Articles 18.2 and 19.9.1 and shall be compensated with a monthly salary equal to 1/10th the annual salary in the Full-Time Academic Salary Schedule.

13.6 Other Compensation

Special projects, television course rights and contract education shall be remunerated on a separately negotiated contract unless negotiated otherwise.

13.7 Method of Payment

A member’s annual salary shall be paid at the rate of 1/10 of their annual salary from the Full-Time Academic Salary Schedule for each month of contractual assignment. Pay dates for all regular/contract and overload assignments shall be the last working day of each month. This section shall re-open April 1, 2007.
New members have the option to be paid in 12 months providing the decision is made no later than August 1 in writing to the Human Resources Department in the academic year the 12 payments shall begin. The 12-month pay cycle is August through July. Continuing faculty shall contact the Payroll Department in writing to select the 12-month option by August 1. (See Appendix F for an example of the 12-month pay calculation.)
Any member who fails to receive a paycheck should immediately report it to their Department Chair or to Human Resources for investigation of the cause. If an error occurs on a paycheck, resulting in overpayment, the Associate Vice-Chancellor of Human Resources and the Vice-Chancellor of Administrative Services shall work with the member to arrange repayment.

13.8 Tax Sheltered Plans

The District shall process individual member’s tax sheltered plans through automatic payroll deductions. Each member is responsible for compliance with current Internal Revenue service rules and regulations.

13.9 Compensation for Substitute Service

There are times when, during the first week of the absence of a member due to an illness or an emergency, it is necessary to provide coverage for a class or service. For absences of one week or less, two alternative methods are available:

  1. The absent member may arrange with another full-time member or associate member to cover the class(es) for compensation. The substituting member shall be paid at the appropriate rate on the Associate Faculty Hourly Salary Schedule C and the absent member shall have the appropriate amount of sick leave deducted from his/her accumulated sick leave. Absence and substitution forms must be submitted together to the Division Chair or supervising administrator.

OR

  1. The absent member may arrange with another full-time member or associate member to cover the class(es) in exchange for future reciprocal substitution. This agreement is between the individual faculty members. The absent member shall not have sick leave deducted; the substituting member shall not receive compensation. The District has no liability for payment of this debt nor any obligation to enforce an agreement between faculty members. No absence or substitution forms are required; however, the absent faculty member shall notify his/her department chair or supervising administrator in writing (and when possible, in advance) of the effective date(s) of absence and substitution arrangements.

For any absences exceeding one week, arrangements for substitution shall be made through the office of the Vice-President of Instruction.

13.10

Members shall not be paid for mileage for travel between campuses. This provision does not, however, supersede the requirements of Ed Code (Sec §87032 Travel Expense Payment).


Letter of Understanding


Article 13.7 states:


Pay dates for all regular/contract and overload assignments shall be the last working day of each month.
In order to give the District time to develop and implement the appropriate procedures to comply with this requirement, ACE, AFT 6554 and the District agree that the current practice regarding the payment of the new contract faculty and the payment of overloads shall continue for the 2007-2008 Academic Year. Thereafter, the requirements of this provision must be met by the District.
ACE, AFT 6554 and the District agree that instructors who taught a section in the 2009 Winter Session shall receive additional compensation as follows if the student maximum limit for the section taught was increased without the instructor’s consent. The additional compensation shall be based on additional load of .008 for each student enrolled in the course on the census date of the class above and beyond the original student maximum. The pay rate shall be based on the instructor’s current step placement on the Associate Salary Schedule A.
The District agrees to provide ACE, AFT 6554 with a listing of the affected course sections. Both ACE, AFT 6554 and the District agree that this agreement is one-time only in nature and does not change existing contract language nor is this agreement precedent setting.
