Negotiation Status Update

The collective bargaining process is critical to maintaining effective working conditions for all employees. The Pasadena Area Community College District (PACCD) is providing the following information to keep all employees and the Pasadena City College community informed on the process and status of collective bargaining with the District’s four employee unions.

Please note that negotiation meetings are open only to the bargaining representatives and are not open to the public or the college community.

Key terms:

  • Collective Bargaining: The process by which management and union representatives negotiate the employment conditions for a bargaining unit for a designated period of time. The parties have a mutual obligation to bargain in good faith in an effort to reach agreement with respect to wages, hours, and working conditions. This obligation does not compel either party to agree to a proposal or to make a concession. Commonly referred to as “negotiations” or “contract bargaining.”
  • Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA): The contract that embodies the results of the negotiations between the employer and the union, and sets forth their agreements.
  • Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)/Side Letter: A formal, signed agreement that serves as an addendum to the collective bargaining agreement. An MOU usually addresses a significant issue that emerged during the term of the agreement, and it represents the mutual understanding between the parties on that issue. An MOU can also be referred to as a memorandum of agreement (MOA), a letter of understanding (LOU), or a letter of agreement (LOA).
  • Supplemental Agreement (SA): An agreement that establishes minor changes to an existing agreement.
  • Sunshine Proposal: A document transmitted at the beginning of a negotiating process defining the intentions of the negotiation. These documents give the public a chance to provide input on the negotiating process.
  • Tentative Agreement (TA): The agreement reached through bargaining prior to its ratification or final approval by the negotiators’ constituencies.
