WHO ARE THE STATE CENTER FEDERATION OF TEACHERS?
We are faculty serving faculty. SCFT is governed by an Executive Council which consists of 34 elected and appointed representatives from all campuses. This 501(c)5 non-profit union has been the bargaining agent for all faculty employed with State Center Community College District, since 1974. Our bargaining members include instructors, counselors, nurses, coaches, librarians, and tutors. Read more about our history on this page.
WHAT IS THE SCFT SPHERE OF RESPONSIBILITY?
The Executive Council of SCFT negotiates the employment contracts of all full-time and part-time employees of SCCCD, manages the day to day business of the Union's non-profit organization, and supervises the Executive Director/Organizer. When faculty are having issues with the contract or their supervisor, SCFT has the right to support them with filing grievances and seeking legal council for support. Learn more about the Executive Council on this page.
WHY DOES MEMBERSHIP MATTER?
SCFT has a Duty of Representation to all faculty employees of SCCCD. This means the Executive Council is obligated to pay per capita fees to their state and national affiliates, who in turn offer our members benefits and discounts. Membership dues also provide local opportunities, including one on one legal consultations, representation at meetings with management, workshops and trainings, social gatherings, and more. Dues-paying members can access benefits on this page.
