Valentine’s week means “heartfelt” events statewide

Dozens of faculty flooded Java City in the library at Sacramento State to participate in a “Calfac-uccino” hosted by the CFA Capitol Chapter on Tuesday, Feb. 11.

Over free coffee, members chatted about the state budget and its impact on funding for the CSU, contract talks and faculty rights issues.

“The event was a real success,” said Kevin Wehr, chapter president. “We had two dozen faculty members gather to converse about current issues of politics and bargaining, as well as the campus climate. CFA can provide a substantial social benefit by offering places for faculty to socialize.”

Similar events are happening throughout the state this week. Chapters on the Channel Islands, East Bay, Los Angeles, Maritime Academy, Northridge, San Diego, Sacramento and San Francisco campuses also held events Monday and Tuesday.

CFA members on every campus want fairness at the bargaining table. Our contract is set to expire June 30. Faculty members are urged to participate in these events to support our bargaining team and to spread that word that achieving a fair contract is important to all of us.
