LOS ANGELES (AP) — Faculty of the California State University system have overwhelmingly approved a new four-year contract that largely preserves current labor terms and contains no salary raises.
California Faculty Association President Lillian Taiz said Tuesday that 91 percent of the association’s members who voted approved the agreement.
About 35 percent of the union’s 12,500 members voted last month.
The association represents 23,000 professors, lecturers and other professional employees throughout CSU’s 23 campuses. Not all are union members.
The contract must still be ratified by the university’s board of trustees at its meeting later this month. Approval is expected.
Faculty have been working without a contract for the last 2 1/2 years during a contentious bargaining process that spurred a strike-authorization vote and intervention of a mediator.
