Oct. 23, 1986 Bellevue Community College Campus I Psych. prof. hired by Ertk Peterson Advocate staff The College&apos;s Social Science department has added a new psychology instructor to teach at least until the end of the year. Dr. Charles Treneer obtained his Ph.D in psychology from the University of Washing- ton earlier this year and is excited about the school year in progress. photo by Alex Washington I Charles M. Treneer Treneer was born in Yakima where he spent the first 18 years of his life. He graduated from East Valley High School in Yakima as a National Merit Scholar. He then went to Whitman College in Walla Walla, where he was an all-conference football player and earned a bachelor's degree in history. After college, Treneer enlisted in the Army in 1971. He was stationed in Europe as a member of the 42nd military police group, working in customs. In 1975 Treneer returned to Washington to continue his education at the University of Washington. It was there that he took his first psychology class. He earned his Ph.D in psychology in 1986 and signed a one year contract to teach at the College. Treneer has authored or co-authored eight scientific publications most dealing with learned food aversions induced by cancer. Treneer thinks that thisyear at the College will be a very important one, giving him the chance to grow as a teacher while hopefully enriching the minds of his students. Says Treneer,'Tm going to try and remain a teacher for as long as I can make a living at it. It's what I love to do." Separate Organizations Represent Employees by Kathy Maynard Advocate staff Three separate labor organizations repres- ent employees at the College. But when the faculty union went on strike Sept. 22, members of the other two groups crossed their picket line to continue working. "We are not a union, membership is optional," said Pat Drake, president of the Classified Employees Association of Bellevue Community College (CEABCC). The asso- ciation represents campus employees with the exception of the maintenance and custodial employees, instructors and the administration. Drake said the CEABCC tries to be truly representative of the classified staff in all areas, from participating on the All College Council to organizing social events. "It's a valuable organization to belong to," Drake said. ''We offer cohesiveness to the staff." An executive cabinet elected by CEABCC members acts as the bargaining unit for the classified staffto establish their employment contract with the Board of Trustees, Drake said. "We are governed by the Higher Education Personnel (HEP) Board as are all classified staff (in the state)," said Drake. "There are some minor things we can bargain for on our contract but we are pretty well restricted by what the HEP Board does." Drake said that a representative from the Association of Higher Education (BCCAHE) read a statement to the CEABCC before the strike, expressing their concern that it might put extra stress on the classifed staff should there be a strike. "They said they were sorry and hoped for our support and hoped it would be resolved quickly," said Drake. The 19 members of the College's chapter of the American Federation of State, City and Municipal Employees (AFSCME) work on the maintenance and custodial sta Their union is alfdiated to the American- Federation of Labor and Congress Industrial Organizations (AFL-CIO) King "County Labor Council of Washington. PAT DRAKE ''We couldn't honor their picket line because our union would not have backed us," said Dennis Herman, shop steward for the College's chapter of AFSCME. While it is possible for an independent labor union such as the BCCAHE to have a strike sanctioned by the AFL-CIO, Labor Council of Washington Public Relations representative Karen Keiser explained that it would have been necessary for them to go through specific procedures to have their picket line honored by other unions. "It doesn't mean we're not in support," Keiser said. "But you can't throw up a picket line and expect others to honor it without going through informational channels." Keiser said she was not aware that anyone in her office was notified by the BCCAHE that they were going to strike. Though the BCCAHE would have liked a show of support from the other employees, it was not crucial in this case, according to John Cahill, assistant executive director for communications for the Washington Education Association (WEA) to which BCCAHE is affiliated. "It didn't matter that they crossed the picket line," Cahill said. "Everything was sucessftflly closed down and that constitutes an effective strike action."
