Cal Poly and other state university faculty sign contract

The California State University Board of Trustees’ Committee on Collective Bargaining today ratified the contract between the CSU and the California Faculty Association, according to the CSU.

Ratification by the full board is expected Wednesday. The four-year agreement covers budget years 2006-07 through 2010-11 and will cost the CSU more than $400 million, according to a CSU statement.

Under the new contract, projected average salaries for full professors will be $105,531; for tenure track faculty (all ranks combined) will be $90,593; and for part-time lecturers will be $53,677, CSU officials said.

The ratification marks the end of two years of “contentious bargaining,” said John Travis, president of the CFA.
