Kevin Wehr, New CFA Bargaining Team Chair

APRIL 2015—Kevin Wehr, president of CFA’s Capitol (Sacramento) Chapter, will become chair of the CFA Bargaining Team this spring.

Wehr has served on the Bargaining Team since 2008.

He said, “It is my hope the CSU will bargain with us in good faith and be willing to recognize and reward the crucial work that faculty do.”

The sociology professor at CSU Sacramento is taking over from Andy Merrifield who served on the CFA Bargaining Team for nearly a decade and chaired it the last four.

“Andy is a dedicated and thorough negotiator who helped secure gains that improved faculty working conditions and student learning conditions,” Wehr said. “I learned a great deal from him, and he will be very missed by us, although CSU management may not be sad to see him retire the post.”
