2017-2018 Service Salary Increase (SSI)

The agreement reached between the California State University (CSU) and the California Faculty Association (CFA – Unit 3), ratified by the CSU Board of Trustees on May 24, 2016, provides salary program provisions for fiscal year 2017/18 as follows:

Salary Program effective July 1, 2017:

    • A General Salary Increase of 3.5% effective July 1, 2017

    • A 2.65% Service Salary Increase (SSI) for eligible employees in FY 2017/18

Definitions and Eligibility Criteria

A Service Salary Increase is upward movement on the salary schedule, awarded to faculty members who have been determined to be eligible based on qualifying service, satisfactory performance, and additional criteria described below.

A Maximum Salary Rate (SSI maximum)

A maximum has been established in each salary range. Except in cases where the faculty member has received one or more Faculty Merit Increase (FMI) awards, an SSI award may not increase the faculty member’s salary beyond the SSI maximum rate. An employee who is otherwise eligible for SSI whose salary is below the SSI maximum rate by less than the amount of the SSI will receive an increase only up to the SSI maximum rate.
