ACE Members
I am pleased to announce we have reached an agreement with the District on our classification and compensation study.  A pdf was emailed to members which include:

  1. An FAQ regarding the tentative agreement.
  2. The MOU for the agreement includes classifications and their corresponding salary level.
  3. A general FAQ regarding the classification/compensation study and how decisions were made.

As we have said all along, this does not go into effect UNTIL the membership votes on it, and if it is passed by the membership, then approved by the Foothill-De Anza Board of Trustees.  

A general membership meeting will be held next Tuesday, March 9 at noon.  A calendar invite will be sent to you shortly.  After the meeting, we will open online voting to approve or reject the study. 

A reminder, ONLY ACE members may attend general membership meetings.  If you’re receiving this email, you’re a member.  If a colleague says they didn’t get the email, please have them contact our president, Chris White.

We would like to thank you for your patience and support during this long process.  It was challenging but we all believe we are better off for it.

In gratitude,

Cathleen Monsell, Chair of Negotiations
