Whereas, Colleges have been encouraged to use and are using Partnership for Excellence (PFE) funds to hire for salaried positions;
Whereas, Salaried positions are eligible for annual Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) increases; and
Whereas, PFE funds currently do not receive COLA and therefore COLA adjustments on salaries for positions funded by PFE must then come from other general fund sources;
Resolved, That the Academic Senate work with the Chancellor to seek a Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for PFE funds.
The president and other senate representatives continue to work with the Consultation Council to seek COLA for PFE funds.
