CFA announces move to successor contract bargaining

Today CFA officially notified the CSU Administration of its intent to commence bargaining a “successor contract” for CSU faculty as well as to renegotiate the Memorandum of Understanding regarding the Maritime Academy’s summer cruise assignments.

The current agreement between CFA and the CSU Chancellor’s Office for Unit 3: Faculty in the CSU expires on June 30, 2014. 

CFA Bargaining Team Chair Andy Merrifield said he’s more hopeful about this round of talks than in many years. “With better funding and a new Chancellor, we are cautiously optimistic that this will be a productive process,” he said.

In preparation, the CFA Bargaining Team asks CFA members to submit their responses to a bargaining survey.

Having input from a large number of faculty will help send a message to the Chancellor and Board of Trustees that faculty are very interested in these negotiations. Furthermore, the survey provides the bargaining team with important information that will help set priorities for their work.

If you are a CFA member, fill out the survey online, or contact your campus CFA chapter for a printed copy.
