District, Classified Union Sign Multi-Year Agreement

In early August, the Coast Colleges District and the Coast Federation of Classified Employees (CFCE) were able to arrive at a mutually agreed upon resolution following months of negotiations. In anticipation of the signed agreement, the Coast Community College District Board of Trustees approved the implementation of a classification and compensation study on June 21.

The class and comp study was conducted two years ago and evaluated key job factors. The report can be found on the CFCE website at www.cfce.org

Alongside the implementation of the class/comp study, several structural changes to Classified benefits and longevity will take effect on Oct. 1. They are:

BENEFITS:

  • All employees who retire will be required to enroll in all District required Medicare programs at age 65
  • The District PPO (Delta Health Systems) will no longer be available after age 65 to retirees.  At age 65, a retiree must choose from UHC PPO or Kaiser Senior Advantage HMO.
  • New Classified employees hired on or after Jan. 1, 2018 must be 60 years of age and have 15 years of continuous full-time service to the District for retiree benefits to age 70
