Faculty Rights Tip: The Work Year

As summer nears, we are reminded that there is a yearly rhythm and cycle to our work.

There are three types of “Work Years” in our Collective Bargaining Agreement:

  • Academic Year (AY)
  • Ten (10)-Month Work Year
  • Twelve (12)-Month Work Year

While the individual campuses have their own particular academic calendars, they must conform to the parameters set out in Articles 20.4, 20.5, and 20.6 of our Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Most faculty members are employed for Academic Years (AYs) not to exceed 180 days.

If you have questions about faculty rights under the faculty contract, you can contact your campus CFA Faculty Rights representative

See previous Faculty Rights Tips on a range of topics in our contract.
