I am very happy to announce that starting Fall 2014, part-time academic employees will no longer have to pay for parking at Allan Hancock College.  From now on, parking on both campuses is free for all members of our bargaining unit when they are employed by Hancock College.

Beginning Monday, August 4, you can go to Building A, fill out the yellow Vehicle Registration card, then present it to any of the District Cashiers and receive your staff parking sticker.

I am especially pleased to make this announcement because many of you have expressed your desire that parking be part of this year’s contract negotiations.  Even though bargaining is not complete, we were able to come to an agreement with the District on this matter and put it into practice at the start of the new semester.  You spoke and we listened, and as always, we are here to serve our members.
