Adjunct Faculty News
Welcome back to the Fall semester. We hope you had a great summer break. The Adjunct Faculty Issues Committee (AFIC) has been busy updating the Adjunct Survival Guide to include new contractual language. If you have not received the new contract, which was mailed to your home address, call the Guild Office at 323-851-1521 and ask for Robert or Reyna. Electronic copies of the contract can be found at www.aft1521.org.

Health Benefits and Open Enrollment
Open enrollment for adjunct health benefits (medical, dental, vision, and pet care) opens on September 10 and ends on October 5th. The good news is that the District has agreed to increase their share of the premium costs. If you need to enroll, or make any changes, you will need to do so before October 5th. If you are already enrolled and do not need to make changes, then there is nothing for you to do.
Eligibility is based on your Spring 2018 assignment(s). If you are teaching at least a .33 or more of a full-time load, you qualify to enroll. If you teach .5 or more, vision coverage is free, and for dental coverage the district will pay half the premium.
During the month of September, there will be health fairs at several locations throughout the district. Hopefully, you’ve received the JLMBC-District Newsletter booklet explaining the entire benefits package. If you did not receive one, check out the district website at: https://bit.ly/2vMcC4D
