Faculty Rights reps learn more about protecting faculty, working conditions

Last week, advocates from all of the CSU campuses met at CFA headquarters in Sacramento to review faculty rights, including advocacy for faculty dealing with Executive Orders 1096 and 1097.

Executive Orders 1096 and 1097 prohibit discrimination, harassment, and retaliation against colleagues, students, subordinates, and others in the CSU community. The policies also explain (and demonstrate compliance with) federal and state civil rights laws that protect employees and students. 

Faculty Rights trainings are held twice each Academic Year, and they provide both member and staff advocates an opportunity to discuss enforcement of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, grievance filing, and discipline appeals.

“Protecting faculty and their working conditions is among the most important work that we do as a union,” said David Bradfield, Chair of CFA’s Representation Committee. “The work that we do within Faculty Rights impacts not just the CSU as a working environment, but also as a learning environment.”
