Faculty Association Members Approve Contract Agreement

Package Now Scheduled for Consideration at May 15 Meeting of CSU Board of Trustees

The California Faculty Association announced last week that its members have voted overwhelmingly to ratify the tentative contract agreement reached by CFA and California State University bargaining teams last month.

The agreement, which won approval with 95 percent of the faculty vote, will now go before the CSU's Board of Trustees for approval at its May 15 meeting.

The three-year agreement includes a 2 percent faculty salary increase for fiscal years 2001-02 and 2002-03, and additional selected raises for 2003-04. If approved by the trustees, the contract would be in place through June 30, 2004.

"We are happy to have an agreement that works in the best interest of both parties," said CSU Chancellor Charles B. Reed. "We need to put this behind us so we can come together with the CFA to advocate for more resources for teaching, enrollment growth, technology and modernized facilities."

The agreement includes the following general terms for compensation:

In the 2001-02 fiscal year:

In the 2003-04 fiscal year:

The 2 percent increase for faculty for 2001-02 is the same percentage agreed to by all other CSU unions, and also is the amount CSU administrators received.
