Article 36: Complete Agreement

Collective Bargaining Agreement for Full-Time Faculty

The parties agree this Agreement is the complete and only agreement between the parties.  Each party has negotiated on all issues identified for negotiations and such negotiations have led to this Agreement.  No additional negotiations will be conducted on any item, whether contained herein or not, except by mutual agreement of the parties.  This Agreement replaces any and all previous Agreements between the parties. 

The parties acknowledge that during the negotiations which resulted in this Agreement, each had the unlimited right and opportunity to make demands and proposals with respect to all proper subjects of collective bargaining and that all such subjects have been discussed and negotiated upon and agreements contained in this Agreement were arrived at after the free exercise of such rights and opportunities; therefore, the Employer and the Union, for the life of this Agreement, each voluntarily and without qualification waives the right and each agrees that the other shall not be obligated to bargain collectively with respect to any subject matter not specifically referred to or covered in this Agreement, even though such subject or matter may not have been within the knowledge or contemplation of either or both of the parties at the time they negotiated or signed this Agreement.

Prior to changing any employee wages, hours, or other terms or conditions of employment, the College shall notify the Union of its intentions. No later than five (5) days after being notified by the College of its intentions, the Union may request to meet and confer with the College regarding the change. The College shall meet with the Union to discuss the Union’s concerns and/or recommendations. This commitment to meet shall not be interpreted in a manner that prevents the College from taking action after meeting with the Union.
