Faculty and Staff Federation of CCP

Since 1970, the Faculty and Staff Federation of Community College of Philadelphia (FSFCCP) has helped to make CCP a good place to work.  Thanks to the steady participation of its members in union activities, FSFCCP has been able to secure and defend some of the best community college employee contracts in the country.  Our members are divided into three bargaining units: Full-Time Faculty; Classified Employees; and Adjunct and Visiting Lecturer Faculty.  We are proud of our history of working together for three contracts.  We are affiliated with the American Federation of Teachers, AFT-Pennsylvania, and the AFL-CIO.

Board Action Update: November 2, 2017

On Thursday, November 2, faculty, staff and students rallied at the Board of Trustees meeting to tell them to get back to table to negotiate three fair contracts. You can view, like and comment on photos and videos of the action on the union's Facebook page here


Faculty, staff and students made it clear that the Board's proposals are unacceptable.  As this photo of staff member Louise Hinton says, she wants a fair contract because the cost of living keeps going up, and our paychecks are staying the same.  And as this photo of faculty member Sarah Byker James says, she wants a fair contract because because CCP students deserve our best!  Students rallied with these signs to let the Board know that students and teachers are united.  


Speakers emphasized that the proposed 5-5 load would require mandatory overtime for full-time faculty, lay off many valuable part-time faculty, make it more challenging for students to get the support they need, and hurt efforts to diversify our faculty body. You can watch a video of faculty member Alexine Fleck addressing the Board hereMarissa Johnson-Valenzuela here, and Julie Odell here. Two students also addressed the Board, and emphasized the ways that students support our fight for fair contracts. You can watch a video of CCP student Michael Luna addressing the Board here.
