Faculty Salary Equity Pay
CFA begins push for new program for all faculty members

CFA is beginning a push for a new round of Faculty Salary Equity Pay for all CSUSM faculty members.  Since we will all need to work together in order to achieve this, we want to ask for your participation in this effort.

What is Faculty Salary Equity Pay?

Our faculty Collective Bargaining Agreement provides the authority for a campus- based Salary Equity program.  It can address inequities such as inversion (when new hires are brought in at higher rates of pay than longer-term faculty) and salary compression (an experience penalty against long- term faculty at the top of their salary ladder who are not eligible for progression).  

On top of increases to address inversion and compression, CFA’s position is that ALL faculty members at CSUSM should receive an Equity increase in order to keep up with pay at comparable institutions.  In the years since the last Equity program, new salary inequities have been created and existing salary inequities have grown worse.  In short, it’s time for the CSUSM administration to address Salary Equity Pay.

How you can help

Immediately after Spring Break, you will receive a petition from CFA, in support of a new Faculty Salary Equity Pay program, in your department mailbox.  It’s important to show, in a tangible way, that we are unified as a faculty union and willing to stand up for Equity Pay.  When you receive the petition, please add your name and return it to the CFA office via campus mail or in person (we’re in Kellogg Library 5002).

We look forward to our efforts together to achieve a new Faculty Salary Equity Pay program.
