Lecturers’ Handbook 2014-2017


In November 2014, the membership of the California Faculty Association
(CFA) and the Board of Trustees of the California State University (CSU)
ratified a new Collective Bargaining Agreement for the years 2014-2017.

Because of the hard work of our CFA Bargaining Team, which includes
Lecturers, tenure-track faculty, librarians, coaches and counelors, we were
able to preserve important protections and rights in our contract and achieve some improvements.

It is important to understand, however, that the contract is an organic
document and, as such, often is impacted in significant ways by actions of the two parties and by arbitrations decided by third parties. Thus, it is advisable that Lecturers stay informed about the contract and participate in the faculty rights process on our respective campuses.

One of the roles of the campus Lecturer Representative is to communicate
changes that occur in the interpretation or implementation of the Collective
Bargaining Agreement.
