On behalf of the Assistant Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs…
Dear MCC Students and Families:
On March 17, 2014, the MCC Faculty Association (MCCFA) filed an Intent to Strike Notice which allows them to stop teaching and working at McHenry County College. The earliest date for a strike could have been March 27, 2014 or any time after that date.
Negotiations continue as of the date of this letter, as some issues remain unsettled. We are hopeful that a settlement can be reached with the MCCFA and a strike avoided.
In the event that a work stoppage occurs by the MCCFA full-time faculty, the College will continue operations with the least amount of disruption. Some credit classes may be suspended; status on these classes and other relevant information will be available on the College website at www.mchenry.edu. In the event that a work stoppage occurs, you will receive further details.
You may hear various statements being made about the status of the negotiations and the parties’ positions. If you have questions in that regard, please contact me directly.
We hope that a strike by the MCCFA full-time faculty does not occur, and we will do our very best to reach a reasonable negotiated settlement.
Assistant Vice President of Student Affairs
