College of DuPage adjunct faculty will receive a two-year contract extension under an agreement approved by the COD Board of Trustees and the COD Adjuncts Association (CODAA).

The College has agreed to provide 3 percent increases to the adjunct salary schedule pool for each of the two additional academic years of 2016 and 2017. If any other represented group negotiates an increase to their respective salary or wage schedule in excess of 3 percent for those two years, the same increase will be extended to CODAA.

"I am very pleased that we reached an innovative agreement that benefits our part-time faculty while ensuring that we remain economically responsible," said COD President Robert L. Breuder.

In response to the Affordable Care Act, the College has created a limited number of new "Lecturer" positions for purposes of extending health benefits where appropriate while remaining fiscally responsible. As part of the contract extension, the College has agreed to increase the maximum number of available Lecturer positions from 15 percent of budgeted full-time faculty positions to 20 percent by the end of the contract extension period.

"With this new contract, we feel that COD has treated its part-time faculty with fairness and, dare I say, compassion," said Michael Dusik, CODAA representative, during the May 12 COD Board of Trustees meeting. "Because of your actions, the adjunct faculty has a more solid foundation to work from."

"It was President Breuder's commitment to the Adjunct Faculty and his creative leadership that resulted in this much appreciated outcome," said Colleen McCoy, CODAA President Elect.
