[CSU] – John Swarbrick, Associate Vice Chancellor, Labor Relations, California State University, issued the following statement Tuesday:
“We are pleased that CFA’s membership has voted to ratify the Tentative Agreement. At the start of these negotiations, CSU outlined its bargaining objectives in terms of seeking changes that would promote academic quality and procedural clarity. We believe that this agreement, particularly in relation to the changes made to faculty appointments, evaluations, and payment for low enrolled summer courses, represents positive progress on both issues. The final step in completing this new agreement will be ratification by the CSU Trustees, and we expect them to take that action at the September board meeting.”
