Negotiations Update

The FA and the District concluded reopener negotiations for the 2014-2017 Faculty Agreement (year 2) in July 2015.

Members ratified the changes by a vote of 285 to 7, and acceptance by the MtSAC Board of Trustees is expected in September 2015. Once ratified, the new contract will be carefully proofread before it is printed. We expect the new contracts will be available to download here by the end of the fall semester. Hard copies (once printed) may be obtained by contacting the Human Resources office, but these may not be available for some time.

The FA and the District anticipate that reopener negotiations (year 3) will commence in Winter 2016. Professors are encouraged to submit ideas for proposals and changes to contract language. We are also looking for professors who are interested in learning how to negotiate a future contract.

For further information please contact Eric Kaljumagi at extension 5751 or at kaljumagi@msac-fa.org

Puttin' On The Hits

The Faculty Association sponsors an annual student scholarship fundraiser known as
Puttin' On The Hits. In the show faculty, staff, administrators and students lip sync to a variety of songs from famous groups, musicians and Broadway shows.

This year (2016) - the performances will be:
Friday evening - March 4th at 7:30 p.m.
Saturday evening - March 5th at 7:00 p.m.


All net proceeds from the show are awarded to Mt. SAC students as scholarships. In 2015 the Association awarded over $10,000 to deserving Mt. SAC students at the FA Student Awards ceremony.

We invite you to be a performer, see the show with your family and friends, and encourage students to attend. Our goal is to award $20,000 in scholarships from the proceeds of the show. If you miss the show but would like to contribute to the scholarship program please mail your tax deductable donation to:

MSAC Faculty Association Student Achievement Fund
20687-2 Amar Road #297
Walnut, California 91789

or call 909-594-5611 extension 4531 for more information.
