Summary

This paper addresses the topic of tenure in community college education and the suspension of tenure in most collective bargaining agreements. It proposes a five-step process to be included within any just cause (incompetence or misconduct) and termination sections of collective bargaining language. Professors who work under collective bargaining agreements have subjugated themselves to contract clauses which, in essence, suspend tenure at the discretion of any designated administrator. No written notice of termination has to be given, no statement as to the reasons for the actions has to be employed, there is no opportunity to engage established grievance procedures, no chance to be confronted by one's accusers, and no neutral arbitrator is assigned. This leaves the employee with only two courses of appeal: file a grievance after the fact, which typically will be reviewed by the same people who authorized the termination, or start a legal action against the institution. Those without collective bargaining agreements have even less protection. Tenure, in its present precarious state, keeps the production of scholarly work at the maximum while offering a minimum of actual incentives. (JA)
