One of LOCC鈥檚 central bargaining priorities is increased compensation. Brown CCs currently receive an annual $10,500 stipend.

As of May 3, the Labor Organization of Community Coordinators has completed six bargaining sessions with the University. Since its formal recognition in the fall, LOCC has proposed contract articles. The University has proposed new article which outlines the roles and tenets of the Community Coordinator position. 

Several of the articles proposed by LOCC would establish its rights as a union. According to LOCC bargaining committee member Anna Ryu 鈥25, these articles contain language adapted from the bargaining agreements of the Graduate Labor Organization and the Teaching Assistant Labor Organization. 

One of LOCC鈥檚 central bargaining priorities is increased compensation. Brown CCs currently receive an annual $10,500 stipend. LOCC鈥檚 most recently proposed compensation includes stipends of $9,940, $7,504, and $2,000 鈥 totaling $19,444 鈥 to cover fees for standard rooms, standard board and services rendered, respectively. 

The clause adds that the proposed CC stipend 鈥渟hall have no bearing on the financial aid offered by the University.鈥 The article also proposes clauses on seniority pay and ad hoc work compensation.

The University鈥檚 most recent to the compensation article raises the annual $10,500 stipend to $12,000 but does not include any additional compensation or clauses, according to a copy of the counterproposal provided by LOCC.   

Another article proposed by LOCC, titled 鈥淩esident Ratios and Role Responsibilities,鈥 asks that the Office of Residential Life assigns 鈥渘o more than 45 residents to each CC in Upper Division Housing and Greek, Program, & Theme Housing鈥 and 鈥渘o more than 35 residents to each CC in First Year Experience Housing.鈥 

While the University did not challenge these ratios in their , a did not include the proposed article. Both articles were provided by LOCC and reviewed by The Herald.

鈥淚t was regressive and disappointing because this is a really large component of ensuring equal working conditions across Community Coordinators,鈥 bargaining committee member Elijah Puente 鈥26 said.  

University Spokesperson Brian Clark wrote in an email to The Herald that 鈥淭he proposal from LOCC groups together subjects that impact other areas of the contract or other proposals. We partially responded to the proposal and reserved the right to review and amend other sections.鈥

鈥淒uring the bargaining process, all proposals are considered open and amendable as conversations around the entire contract develop,鈥 Clark added. 鈥淯ntil a particular article has been agreed to by a tentative agreement and initiated by both sides, it is open for revision.鈥 

Puente expressed frustration regarding the current progress in negotiations. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 think much progress has been made toward improving working conditions,鈥 he said. 

鈥淚t鈥檚 been difficult to feel like there鈥檚 progress, especially when counterproposals we receive don鈥檛 actually feel like they鈥檙e counter-proposing things,鈥 Ryu said. 鈥淚t just feels like they鈥檙e just telling us what isn鈥檛 going to work.鈥 

According to Clark, 鈥淭he University's proposals have clarified roles and responsibilities, offered an increase in compensation and responded to other ideas offered by union representatives.鈥 

鈥淓xchanging proposals and counterproposals and working through details is a natural part of collective bargaining negotiations, and we continue to work with the union in good faith,鈥 Clark added.

鈥淚t is true (that) we wanted more clarity and specificity clearly defined in our contract around (our responsibilities), so it鈥檚 great that they鈥檙e acknowledging that,鈥 Ryu said. 鈥淚t鈥檚 challenging because they still seem a bit unclear on many of their counterproposals.鈥 

鈥淎 union contract provides the framework for the work of a group of employees, outlining the basic tenets of the roles and duties of a particular position,鈥 Clark wrote. 鈥淚t is not intended to be a document by which all roles and responsibilities are thoroughly detailed, given the role of a department in deciding the day-to-day work of employees.鈥 

LOCC still aims to have a contract in place by the next academic year. 鈥淎t this point, it鈥檚 clear we will be meeting throughout the summer,鈥 Ryu said.

Correction: A previous version of this article listed the incorrect proposal by LOCC counterproposal offer by the University for the total Community Coordinator stipend. The Herald regrets the error.
