Part-time faculty members in community colleges are usually paid per course and need to go through a rehiring process each term. This job insecurity affects a majority of community college professors, since part-time professors make up two-thirds of community college faculty. AB1690 – in conjunction with SB1379 – gives part-time professors the right to negotiate with their employers regarding rules of employment and termination, allowing them to work toward solutions that will give them more stable careers.
