Cal State Faculty Approves Four-Year Contract, Ending Contentious Bargaining

California State University's unionized faculty has overwhelmingly approved a new four-year labor contract, ending more than two years of contentious bargaining with the administration.

California Faculty Association president Lillian Taiz says the contract won 91 percent of approval by voting members. About 45 percent of the union's 12,500 voting members cast ballots over several weeks last month

Taiz says the contract largely preserves current working conditions and contains no salary raises for the 23,000 professors, lecturers and other professional employees throughout CSU's 23 campuses.

Associate vice chancellor for labor relations John Swarbrick said in a statement that he was pleased that the union has passed the agreement and added that he expects the board to also ratify it.

Faculty members have been working without a contract for the last 2½ years.
