California State University and the California Faculty Association announced a tentative agreement Tuesday morning to extend their existing collective bargaining agreement through June 30, 2020. The agreement originally was set to expire in 2018.
The new agreement would cover 28,000 professors, lecturers, librarians, counselors and coaches throughout the university system, which includes Cal Poly, according to a CFA statement.
Faculty will receive a 3.5 percent general salary increase on Nov. 1, 2018, followed by a 2.5 percent increase on July 1, 2019.
The present terms of the contract related to other articles, including benefits will be extended, the CFA statement said.
Both parties have agreed to continue negotiations related to intellectual property and academic freedom. They also will form a working group to review university salary structures.
The CFA Board of Directors unanimously recommended the agreement to the full CFA membership, which will vote on the agreement ahead of the CSU Board of Trustees’ Nov. 7-8 meeting.
