Owens Community College Faculty and Administration Agree to a Contract Extension

Owens Community College and the Owens Faculty Association wish to announce that they have agreed upon a two-year contract extension. Both the College's Board of Trustees and the faculty membership group approved the contract extension earlier today.

"This agreement is not the end of negotiations, it's the commencement of a stronger relationship built on mutual trust and collaboration," said Gary Dettling, Owens Vice President of College Advancement.

Angela Ondrus, President of the Owens Faculty Association and Associate Professor of Business, Public Service, and Information Technologies, said, "The Owens Faculty Association considers this settlement to be equitable and a positive step forward in recognizing the needs of our members, students, institution and community. The joint approval of a contract extension provides an avenue whereby labor-management relations at Owens Community College can heal and continue to improve."

The tentative contract extension provides for, retroactive to February 2004, a 5 percent increase to all bargaining unit members, with a 4 percent increase in February 2005.
