The CCRI Faculty Association (CCRIFA), the union of full-time faculty at the Community College of Rhode Island, today announced a successful vote to ratify the latest contract offer from the Office of the Post Secondary Commissioner.

Polling closed on Tuesday May 7, 2024, and 93% of voting faculty approved of the offer.

“Ratification follows two years of difficult negotiations and mediation, and we are thankful for our faculty’s perseverance,” said Mazin Adam, president of CCRIFA. “I’m proud to always say CCRI faculty are the biggest advocates for our students and champion their success. Throughout this process we stood together while maintaining our commitment to our students.”

CCRI faculty are represented by the National Education Association of Rhode Island (NEARI).
