Thank you for voting!

Faculty throughout the state voted this week on the tentative agreement to extend the contract two years.

The vote began Monday, Oct. 30 and ended at 2 pm on Thursday, Nov. 2.

All CFA active members were able to vote. If you’re not yet a member, join today.

The Tentative Agreement would extend the current contract through June 2020, and includes two raises — 3.5% General Salary Increase (GSI) in November 2018 and 2.5% GSI in July 2019. The Tentative Agreement also protects benefits at current levels, and allows CFA and CSU management to continue negotiations over academic freedom and intellectual property. 

Rafael Gómez, CFA’s Associate Vice President North and a Professor at CSU Monterey Bay, said faculty there are content with the contract extension, which is “a bright spot in an otherwise difficult moment due to the CSU Executive Orders.”

“I’m voting yes because the tentative agreement provides a salary increase, a chance to work on our current salary structure, and it protects our benefits and our academic freedom,” Gómez said.

Campus CFA Chapters have been holding an assortment of events and activities this week to encourage faculty to cast their ballot. Click here to check out a photo gallery of campus events.
