For many years, Article 16.8 of the collective bargaining agreement (CBA) between Monterey Peninsula College (MPC) and the Monterey Peninsula College Teachers Association (MPCTA) has contained a formula for the adjustment of salary schedules based upon the level and sources of funding received from the State of California.  A dispute arose between MPCTA and MPC Article 16.8 in the 2015-16 fiscal year. 

On November 21, 2016, representatives from MPC and MPCTA attended the third meeting before a mediator in order to resolve the pending grievance.  At the end of the day, the mediator issued a “mediator’s proposal” which was accepted by both MPC and MPCTA as the best possible outcome through mediation, and which both parties agreed to present to their constituents for ratification/adoption. 

A copy of the Settlement Agreement is attached to this Update.  Essential elements of the settlement include:

  • A one-time, off-schedule payment to each unit member in the amount of four percent (4%) of base salary earned in 2015-16;
  • An on-schedule increase in the 2016-17 Salary Schedules A, B-1, B-2, C-1, C-2, and the Coaching Pay Schedule, in the amount of 1%, effective July 1, 2016;
  • An on-schedule increase in the 2017-18 Salary Schedules A, B-1, B-2, C-1, C-2, and the Coaching Pay Schedule, in the amount of 2%, effective July 1, 2017;
  • The formula contained in Article 16.8 will be stricken from the CBA and will not apply in 2016-17 or thereafter, and the pending grievance(s) regarding Article 16.8 are withdrawn with prejudice;
  • Bargaining over compensation for 2015-16 is closed, and bargaining for 2016-17, 2017-18 remains open.
