Today, the CFA announced that its members had voted in favor of the ​tentative agreement reached with the CSU in January.

The following statement can be attributed to the California State University Office of the Chancellor:​

“The California State University (CSU) is pleased with the results of the California Faculty Association's (CFA) ratification vote. This agreement provides for a 10 percent general salary increase to all faculty by July, with a raise in salary minimums for the lowest-paid faculty that will result in increases—some as high as 21 percent—for many of them. It also addresses issues that the CFA identified as extremely important to its members, such as increased paid family leave from 6 to 10 weeks and a process for making gender-inclusive restrooms and lactation spaces more easily accessible. We look forward to the CSU Board of Trustees Committee on Collective Bargaining ratification of the agreement in March and to continue working in partnership with the CFA and its members to carry out our mission in service to our students and the university."

A link to the tentative agreement can be found on the CSU Labor and Employee Relations website under Tentative Agreements. ​
