All Employee Representative Council (AERC)

The College encourages all employees to submit their comments regarding policy and terms and conditions of employment to the All Employee Representative Council (AERC). The AERC is a group of representatives from all employee classifications serving two-year terms: full-time and adjunct faculty, exempt and non-exempt staff, temporary employees and administrators.

The AERC meets monthly and will review the comments brought forward to determine the appropriate pathway for investigation and resolution.

Pathway 1: Policy Changes

Includes issues that require changes to or a new Board Policy, Administrative Procedure, Employee Personnel Policy Statement, or Handbook. Also includes employment-related issues of broad significance best addressed through the Meet and Confer process, including modification of existing or creation of a new Board Policy, Administrative Procedure, Employee Classification and/or Common Policy Statements, or Annual Compensation Process.

Pathway 2: Non-Policy Changes

Includes issues that do not require a change to policy.

Note: Employment issues of more limited applicability (including potential policy violations) may be better addressed on an individual basis or through the processes available from an appropriate responsible department or through established College-wide complaint processes. The AERC will direct these issues to the most appropriate office (i.e., Office of Dispute Resolution, Human Resources, Office of the General Counsel, Equal Employment Opportunity Office, a Dean, etc.).

Submitting an Issue or Concern

The online AERC Request form is available to submit comments. Do not include any confidential information in your AERC submission. 

You may want to consider whether the employee or student complaint process are more appropriate for your concern. You may also want to review: 

  • BP 1.25 Personnel Governance and Policy for College Employees
