This morning, the factfinding report regarding our bargaining with CSU management became public, and we are pleased to be able to tell you that it validates our proposal regarding salary increases for faculty.
The major recommendations from Factfinder Bonnie Castrey —the arbitrator who chaired the factfinding panel — are as follows:
Increase faculty compensation with a 5% General Salary Increase (GSI).
Provide Service Salary Increases to eligible faculty (about 43% of faculty members).
Continue to study the faculty salary issue.
Develop a joint strategy for obtaining the needed state funding for the CSU budget.
The full fact-finding report can be read here: www.calfac.org/item/factfinding-report-goes-public. We also are holding a news conference this morning at CSU Sacramento to discuss the report with the news media.
Despite these findings, CSU management has declined to implement these recommendations. We now have the legal right to strike, and we’re moving forward with our plans to strike on all 23 campuses April 13-15 and 18-19.
If you have already committed to strike, thank you. If you haven’t yet pledged to honor the strike, click here to commit to strike.
