FLAA

One of the organizations SAC AAUP works very closely with is the ACCD FLAA.

The Alamo Community College District Faculty Legal Action Association was incorporated in November 1986. The purpose was to have a vehicle to protect faculty rights and have the ability to use legal counsel about faculty issues and concerns. The precipitating event was a threat to end pro-rata pay for summer work.

The FLAA’s legal counsel is Jay Brim from Brim, Arnett, Robinett & Conners, P.C.

Current officers are:

Gerald Busald, President
Linda Lowman, Vice-President
Thomas Knox, Treasurer
Viviane Marioneaux, Secretary
Alex Bernal, Board Member
Tony Bower, Board Member
Dawn Elmore, Board Member

Admission and Membership – contact Gerald Busald if you wish to join:

  1. I tried to email you yesterday to join FLAA. I’m an associate professor in music at Vista.

    My current concern is that–amid the hubbub–the administration has–silently–already changed the number of credits in some of the concentrations within the GPS advising system. This, while discipline coordinators across the district are simultaneously meeting, as mandated by district administration, to formulate a consensus proposal.

    This unceremonious unilateral act is a real case of dirty pool, at best, and may well have legal ramifications. In my view, we need to seek legal ASAP to find out where the boundaries are.

    Thank you!
