Our big budget win
Open House on Thursday, Sept 6

Over the summer, CFA achieved a tremendous budget victory – thanks to the work of faculty members and our student allies – and we want to be sure you are aware of its impacts.  

This budget victory, resulting in a $364 million funding increase for the CSU, makes it much more possible to achieve a Faculty Salary Equity program this year, earmarks funds for more tenure-track hiring, and helps prevent reductions in work available for Lecturers.

We say that CFA achieved this budget victory — along with our student allies in Students for Quality Education — because only CFA and SQE were pushing for this increase.  The budget increase was over $100 million more than the Chancellor’s Office had requested.  This victory came about because SDSU faculty members responded to our calls for messages to be sent to the governor and legislature, faculty members participated in CFA’s visits to legislators offices in Sacramento and San Diego, and faculty members participated in CFA’s big rally at the State Capitol in Sacramento.  This shows what is possible when we stand up together as a faculty union.

CFA will host an informal Open House at our campus office on Thursday to highlight the importance of our work in Sacramento and how you can be involved if it is something that interests you.  Or simply stop by to mingle and enjoy a mid-day refreshment.
