Article 3 Effect of Agreement
EFFECT OF AGREEMENT
3.1 This Agreement constitutes the entire Agreement of the Trustees and the CFA, arrived at as a result of meeting and conferring. The terms and conditions may be altered, changed, added to, deleted from, or modified only through the voluntary and mutual consent of the parties in an expressed written amendment to the Agreement. This Agreement supersedes all previous agreements, understandings, policies, and prior practices directly related to matters included within this Agreement. In the absence of any specific provisions in this Agreement, all CSU practices and procedures are at the discretion of the Employer. The Employer shall provide notification to CFA at least thirty (30) days prior to the implementation of systemwide changes affecting the working conditions of faculty unit employees. Upon request of CFA, the CSU shall meet and confer with CFA on the demonstrable impact of such changes.
3.2 The parties acknowledge that, during the negotiations that resulted in this Agreement, each had the unlimited right and opportunity to make demands with respect to any subject or matter not removed by law from the area of collective bargaining, and that the understandings and agreements arrived at by the parties after the exercise of that right and opportunity are set forth in this Agreement. Except as provided elsewhere in this Agreement, the CSU and the CFA, for the life of this Agreement, each voluntarily and unqualifiedly waives the right, and each agrees that the other shall not be obligated to bargain collectively with respect to any subject or matter referred to or covered in this Agreement, or with respect to any subject or matter not specifically referred to or covered in this Agreement, even though such subjects or matters may not have been within the knowledge of the parties at the time that they negotiated or signed this Agreement.
