CFA members, CSU Trustees ratify 2014-2017 contract

NOVEMBER 2014—CFA members ratified the tentative agreement for a three-year contract earlier this week and today (Nov. 12), the CSU Board of Trustees unanimously ratified the agreement.

Of those CFA members who voted online November 1-9, 91% voted in favor of the agreement.

Today, the contract was discussed and ratified during the CSU Board of Trustees meeting held in Long Beach.

The contract remains in effect until June 30, 2017.

As a requirement of the agreement, CFA and CSU management will meet again to negotiate the salary structure for years two and three of the contract.

The agreement includes a number of positive gains for CSU faculty, and will help enable faculty to continue to provide quality public higher education to California’s college students.

“After years of sacrifice by faculty, this contract is a work in progress toward fixing our broken salary system,” said Lillian Taiz, president of CFA and a professor at Cal State LA. “It is a contract that will help us focus our energy and attention on taking care of our families and teaching the students of California.”
