CFA Assembly marks 30 years of our faculty union

CFA - 30 years - 1983-2013

When faculty delegates from each CSU campus gather in Los Angeles this weekend for the semi-annual CFA Assembly, they will mark a milestone.

It was 1983 when CSU faculty voted to have the California Faculty Association as their collective bargaining representative on all 23 CSU campuses.

CFA President Lillian Taiz said, “Through these decades our members have built a strong and vital union. We have fought the good fight for our faculty, our students and our campuses by becoming a strong voice for quality public higher education.

“My congratulations for 30 amazing years go to every CFA member current and past, every ally in another union, every student who has stood with us, every Californian who speaks out for the CSU,” she said.

Assembly delegates will hear from a panel of long-time CFA leaders and members who will talk about how the lessons of the last 30 years can help us keep winning as we move into our next 30 years.
