The collective agreement of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) specifies procedures for the fair resolution of complaints, conditions of employment in terms of wages and working conditions, as well as ways for parties to regularly discuss issues of mutual perception and promote harmonious relations between the employer and the Union and to maintain a workplace in which workers are treated with dignity, respect and courtesy. This agreement is between the Higher Education Council (the «employer») and the Massachusetts Teachers Association/Massachusetts Community College Council (`the Association`). The parties intend to address in this agreement how distance education and remote termination affect the day and bargaining units of the MTA/MCCC CED, as well as how collective agreements are interpreted for each unit as applicable to distance learning courses. All provisions of the respective collective agreements continue to apply in accordance with their conditions, unless they are amended.
