2-year Contract Extension for California Faculty
Members of the California Faculty Association are set to vote on whether or not to extend their contract which is set to expire January 2018. Should the extension be approved, members will receive a 6% raise over the next two years. An extension will also allow the union to focus on advocacy for student services such as support for DACA students and the campaign for free college tuition. In addition, work groups would be established to prepare for future negotiations in the areas of academic freedom, intellectual property and salary structures.
