Negotiations Update

The FA and the District opened negotiations for the 2017-2019 Faculty Agreement (year 2) in January 2018 and concluded them in August 2018, agreeing to postpone discussion on medical benefits and one-time monies until January 2019.

13 Tentative Agreements were signed, and both the District and the Association are considering the changes (as of August 2018). Since the fall semester began without ratification, many of the changes will not take effect until January 2019. However, the salary increase of 2.71% will be retroactive to July 1st.

The FA Representative Council recommends a "yes" vote on the contract. The ballot for ratification of the contract went out on September 18th and is due back to the FA on October 12th.

In addition, the survey for 2019 negotiations opened on the Mt. SAC Luminis Portal on September 20th and will close on October 10th. All faculty are encouraged to take the survey.

The prior year (2017-19 year 1) contract is available electronically on the FA website. We have run out of hard copies. Should the ballot be ratified, the new contract should be available both online and in hard copy by January.

If you have questions about the contract, please contact Joan Sholars at extension 5752 or at jsholars@earthlink.net.

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 (2019) - the performances will be on March 22nd and 23rd. This will be our 21st annual show!


All net proceeds from the show are awarded to Mt. SAC students. In 2018 the Association awarded over $10,000 to deserving Mt. SAC students at the FA Student Awards ceremony.

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

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