LOS ANGELES (CBS) —The California State University system and its faculty union Tuesday reached a tentative 4-year contract agreement that will reportedly prevent strikes in the fall.
The settlement doesn’t include any raises for the past two years, when there was no contract. But talks of that issue could be reopened for the next two years.
The deal preserves job stability for lecturers, and will consider faculty input to determine class sizes.
The contract affects 23,000 professors, counselors and librarians at CSU.
The agreement must be ratified by the California Faculty Association and the Board of Trustees.
