Thank you to everyone who participated in the vote on the 4Cs and SEBAC Tentative Agreements.
All three tentative agreements – SEBAC, 4Cs full-time CBA, and 4Cs part-time CBA – were overwhelmingly approved by you. Please see the attached
for our CBA results.
In addition, all Connecticut SEBAC voting unit members unanimously approved the SEBAC tentative agreement. Please see the SEBAC press release here
The support of these agreements by our members sends an important message to every Connecticut citizen. Together, we have stated loud and clear that we are willing to do our part to assure Connecticut Community Colleges continue to deliver affordable, high quality education and excellent services into the future. This is what we do, and we do it extremely well!
Your support for these agreements is a reflection of how much 4Cs members care about protecting Connecticut Community Colleges, our students, and our communities.
Thank you for your dedication and sacrifice.
Bryan R. Bonina, President
Congress of CT Community Colleges

Published on eve before Thanksgiving in the New Britain Herald and The Bristol Press, 4Cs President Bryan Bonina discusses inequity in higher education.
– I was delighted to see the Sept. 6 editorial in my hometown newspaper and former employer, the Bristol Press. The editorial, which also ran in the Press’s sister paper, The New Britain Herald, convincingly pled the case for adequately funding Connecticut’s Community Colleges, which are many residents’ best and only hope for a college education.
Today, the editorial noted, even the modest $4,042 annual tuition we offer prices some of our less fortunate students out of the education market. Couple that with the cost of textbooks, which can reach the $200-$300 mark for a single book, and you have an obstacle that, for many of our students, is insurmountable.
Read the full op-ed here.
