CSU faculty OKs contract

first_imgLOS ANGELES – Following 23 months of negotiations and a strike authorization vote, California State University faculty members, including those at the Long Beach, Los Angeles and Northridge campuses, have approved a tentative labor agreement, union officials announced on Monday. The California Faculty Association’s 12,000 members, voting on all 23 CSU campuses last week, approved the tentative contract by 97 percent. “We are happy to ratify this contract and hope that this CSU administration will do the same,” said CFA President John Travis. “Through intense negotiations, faculty activism and finally strike preparations, the CSU faculty have won a contract that provides fair salaries, retirement security, proper grievance procedures and much more.” The California State University Board of Trustees is expected to vote on the contract at its May 15-16 meeting. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Reed. “Even with the full funding provided in the compact with the governor, which assumes a 4 percent increase in state funding and a 10 percent student fee increase, the combination of all compensation agreements with our employees and increased health benefit premiums will cost approximately $40 million more than the proposed 2007- 08 CSU budget,” he said. “We will continue working with the Legislature and the governor to secure additional funding to minimize campus impacts.” Last month, CSU officials said the proposed contract provides faculty members with base pay increases of 20.7 percent over a four-year period, along with some step increases. – City News Servicelast_img read more
