Minnesota community college faculty to receive up to $1.9M in back pay


The union representing faculty at Minnesota's 30 community colleges settled a long-running dispute with the Minnesota State system that could grant its members nearly $2 million in back pay.

The Minnesota State College Faculty union has argued since 2010 that the system's two-year institutions do not properly pay faculty who take on special assignments such as overseeing independent studies, labs and internships or chairing their departments. The agreement signed Wednesday settles a lawsuit the union filed two years ago. The system admitted no wrongdoing in the settlement but agreed to revisit faculty pay for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 academic years.
