Faculty Collective Bargaining in the California State University. A Staff Report on the 1983-1986 Agreement between the Board of Trustees and the California Faculty Association for Unit 3--Faculty. Commission Report 84-3.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
Features of a 1983-1986 faculty collective bargaining contract at the California State University (CSU) are described. The Congress of Faculty Associations won representation rights for the faculty bargaining unit at CSU in a 1983 election. Attention is directed to: grievance procedures; appointment, probation, tenure, and promotions; layoff; salary schedule; exceptional merit service awards; market condition salary supplements; and library faculty unit salary schedule. Included in the bargaining unit are those classifications of librarians that are considered as faculty. The agreement streamlines all grievance and disciplinary action procedures to provide shorter time periods at each step. A significant change from past procedures is that the grievance proceedings now provide for full "de novo" hearings before the arbitrator and eliminate a faculty hearing prior to arbitration. All layoffs of nontenured faculty require consideration of seniority, affirmative action, merit, and academic qualifications, while layoffs of tenured faculty must be in inverse order of seniority in the layoff unit. Tenured faculty are guaranteed recall rights with reinstatement for 5 years after layoff. (SW)
