The California Faculty Association announced the tentative approval of a 5 percent salary increase starting June 30, a 2 percent increase on July 1 of this year and a 3.5 percent increase starting July 1 of next year will go in front of the board of trustees during its meetings on May 24-25.
A little more than 60 percent of CFA members voted between April 22-29 and approved the tentative agreement with 97 percent in favor, according to the CFA website.
“This agreement is an important step toward normalizing salaries for public state university faculty,” CFA President Jennifer Eagan said on the website. “CSU faculty are in the classrooms, facilitating student learning and achievement, which is the whole point of a public university. We must protect university teaching as a solid middle-class profession that lets us support our families while we deliver high quality education to our students.”
The adjustments to the paychecks should begin in September or October and faculty can look at www.calfac.org/salary-estimator to calculate their new salary with this tentative agreement in place.
