Ratification of Tentative Agreements with Three Labor Groups Closes Remaining Contract Re-Opener Negotiations

The recent action by the California State University Board of Trustees to ratify tentative collective bargaining agreements with the State University Police Association (SUPA), State Employees’ Trade Council (SETC) and the Union of American Physicians and Dentists closes all outstanding contract re-openers among CSU bargaining units.

“We appreciate the engagement by all CSU bargaining units which resulted in salary increases for more than 40,000 employees of the university,” said Gail Brooks, CSU vice chancellor of human resources. “We look forward to continued productive negotiations with the collective bargaining teams representing all CSU groups to arrive at fair agreements that allow employees to carry out the critical mission of the university.”

With the conclusion of all existing salary re-opener negotiations, the CSU’s systemwide collective bargaining team will now focus efforts on negotiating full contract agreements with bargaining units that have contracts that expire at the end of the current fiscal year including the California Faculty Association, California State University Employees Union, State University Police Association and the International Union of Operating Engineers.
