There will be a dramatic reduction in employees in a decision to come on April 13th. Temp and Student staff are currently working from home, proving that their jobs and support are needed within the district. 

It is unfair for more than 2000 Los Rios Temp and Student Staff to lose their jobs because of the lack of preparedness of the District. Temp Classified and Student Staff are asking to finish the year at the hours and pay that has already been budgeted. 

Programs such as Umoja, Puente, RISE, PRISE, UndocuCenters, Pride Programs, Financial Aid, Tutoring Services, Athletics, and plenty more are run by temp and student staff serving over 75,000+ students. Chancellor Brian King and the Los Rios Board of Trustees are willing to fire them during this pandemic.

They are trying to justify this action by stating that they are preparing for a severe recession. But in times of recession enrollment goes up and CA Community Colleges may receive more funding. 

We ask the Los Rios Community College District Chancellor and Board of Trustees to do the right thing and AT LEAST allow Temporary Classified and Student Staff to finish their year at the already budgeted hours and pay rate. 

We ask the Chancellor Brian King and ALL Board of Trustees to cut their pay in accordance with their decision to cut the jobs of thousands of staff. 

CALL TO ACTION: Show up and make a public comment for the Board of Trustees Meeting Wed, April 15th, 2020 at 5:30pm. This meeting will be virtual. The zoom link has yet to be announced. The link will be emailed & posted on this page once it becomes available.

No money donation needed. Thanks :)
