All Employee Representative Council

The College encourages all employees to submit their comments regarding policy and terms and conditions of employment to the All Employee Representative Council (AERC). The AERC is a group of representatives from all employee classifications: faculty, adjunct faculty, exempt staff, non-exempt staff, temporary employee representation, and administrators. The AERC meets monthly.

AERC representation includes 2 members from each of the following groups:  ACES, Adjunct Faculty, Administration, AFSCME, Non-PCCEA Faculty selected by Faculty Senate, Non-ACES Staff selected by Staff Council, Non-AFSCME Staff selected by Staff Council, PCCEA, Temporary Staff (full time advocates).

Topic pathways

During their meetings, the AERC will review the comments brought forward and determine the appropriate pathway for investigation and resolution.

Pathway 1: Policy Changes

Includes issues that require changes to or a new Board Policy, Administrative Procedure, Employee Personnel Policy Statement, or Handbook. Also includes employment-related issues of broad significance best addressed through the Meet and Confer process, including:  modification of existing or creation of new Board Policy, Administrative Procedures, Employee Classification and/or Common Policy Statements, or Annual Compensation Process.

Pathway 2: Non-Policy Changes

Includes issues that do not require a change to policy.

Note: Employment issues of more limited applicability (including potential policy violations) may be better addressed on an individual basis or through the processes available from an appropriate responsible department or through established College-wide complaint processes.  The AERC will direct these issues to the most appropriate office (i.e., Office of Dispute Resolution, Human Resources, Office of the General Counsel, Equal Employment Opportunity Office, a Dean, etc.).

If you believe your issue does not require a change to policy, we encourage you to refer to the list of "Additional Resources" that may better address your concern.
