Status Report

Legislative Committee make a recommendation to Executive Committee. Update 6/25/2015: Although the ASCCC is sensitive to the subject of the resolution, it has been deemed "moot" since faculty pay is not within the purview of the 10+1.

Whereas administrators receive amenities, such as a vehicle allowance, which are counted towards the amount paid to that administrator from the State Teachers Retirement System (STRS) when that administrator retires, and

Whereas compensation faculty receive for working summer is not included as payment to faculty be STRS when faculty retire, and

Whereas there should be parity between faculty and administrators as it relates to income derived from college employment and STRS retirement, and

Whereas accomplishing parity does not represent an additional cost to STRS,

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges urge STRS to change current policy to permit all income received by faculty to count toward their retirement benefits, and

Resolved that the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges support parity of STRS retirement benefits for faculty and administrators.
