Faculty Contract Talks Coming: CFA Chapters invite faculty to prepare

All faculty are invited to CFA Bargaining Meetings hosted by your Campus CFA Chapter.

CFA Officers and members of the CFA Bargaining Team will be there to report back on results of the Faculty Bargaining Survey circulated last November. Faculty feedback from the survey and Bargaining Meetings helps our Bargaining Team shape the priorities in talks on the next contract.

They also will give updates on the bargaining landscape, which is different from how it was during the last round of talks.

“At the meetings we have had so far, it is clear that CSU faculty appreciate the challenges facing us during the next round of bargaining,” says CFA President Jennifer Eagan.

She explained, “Some of these challenges occur on the national political landscape, and it is no surprise that means we could be affected by possible attacks on public employees and on labor unions. We also discuss at these meetings legislative changes to California state pensions and benefits, which present new challenges to our contract talks.”

Meetings in April are:

Thursday, April 20: San Bernardino and Dominguez Hills
Wednesday, April 26: Northridge, San Marcos and San Diego
Thursday, April 27: Channel Islands, Sacramento and Long Beach

Many more campus CFA Chapters meet in May.
