Settlement Reached in Negotiations on Contract For California State University Faculty

On Friday, July 27, 2012, the California Faculty Association and representatives of the California State University management reached a tentative agreement on a successor contract.The agreement, which covers the 23,000 instructional faculty, coaches, librarians, and counselors on the 23 campuses of the California State University, will be in effect through June 30, 2014.

The agreement will become effective upon ratification by CFA members and the CSU Board of Trustees. Efforts are underway to complete the process by the September 2012 Board of Trustees meeting.

The parties are hopeful that this agreement will allow the CSU community to shift its attention to critical matters related to increasing revenue to the state and to the CSU.
