Opening Day is Wednesday, August 30, 8:00 am to 3:00 pm, South Campus. Come and meet ECC's new President, Dr. Dan Hocoy.
Of vital interest to all FFECC members: join your FFECC leadership team on Opening Day for breakout sessions “Advocating for our college our students and our colleagues; building a stronger professional union” at 1:00 and 2:00 pm in Room 5101. The intent of these sessions is to inform our members of potential external challenges that could affect not only your profession but the students you serve.
NYSUT leadership and professional staff will present and discuss upcoming legal challenges to public sector unions (such as ours) as well as how to build a more collaborative, participatory "transformational" union to react to these challenges.
NYSUT Executive Vice President Jolene DiBrango will speak as well as your FFECC officers and NYSUT labor relation specialist Elizabeth Vignaux. Come to one or both sessions. Thumb drives containing the FFECC contract will be distributed at the end of each session.
We look forward to seeing you as we begin a new chapter at Erie Community College.
After Opening Day, starting at 3:30, join us for an Opening Day after party at Buffalo River works, 359 Ganson Street, Buffalo 14203 for drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Come to meet and greet your FFECC leadership team and, we hope, College officials.
Welcome to a new academic year and a new and stronger SUNY ERIE!
