Wage Settlement Between CSU and Faculty Step Toward Economic Equity, Says Speaker Rendon

SACRAMENTO—Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) released the following statement after the announcement of a contract agreement between the California State University (CSU) and the California Faculty Association:

“This is great news. I congratulate the California Faculty Association and CSU Chancellor Tim White for coming together on a salary agreement. CFA fought hard for their members and CSU enhanced the strong reputation it has earned with the Legislature for acting with honesty and integrity.

“With this agreement we’re not only avoiding a difficult strike, we’re also taking a badly needed step forward toward economic equity for the backbone of the CSU system who teach our next generation of leaders.

“With CSU maintaining its ability to recruit and retain talented faculty, this agreement is also a major victory for students.”
