Equal pay for equal work. It’s a simple idea, but one that has
remained all but elusive for part-time faculty, so much so that
some have decried the quest for it as a Sisyphean effort.
However, the recent gains made by the Peralta Federation of
Teachers shows that parity is possible.
Now, Peralta pays its adjuncts at the same hourly rate for
teaching and office hours as its full-time faculty — a first in
the California Community College system.
