Press Release Collective Bargaining

Tentative Agreement Reached on Multi-Year Contract for Employees Represented by Academic Professionals of California




The California State University (CSU) and Academic Professionals of California (APC; Unit 4) have reached a tentative agreement on salary and benefits for fiscal years 2014-15, 2015-16 and 2016-17.  The agreement covers more than 2,400 academic support professionals on the CSU’s 23 campuses who provide academic counseling, financial aid advisement and other student support services.  It will be in effect through June 30, 2017.

“Our campuses rank among the finest in the nation due, in large part, to the dedication and expertise of our outstanding employees.  This tentative agreement acknowledges their invaluable contribution to the success of our students with immediate competitive compensation increases and strong compensation growth over the next two years,” explained CSU Chancellor Timothy P. White.

The agreement will provide a three percent general salary increase for all employees represented by APC, effective July 1, 2014. It also provides for two percent general salary increases in each of the subsequent two years, which is in line with projected increases in the CSU’s general fund allocation as outlined in the governor’s multi-year funding plan for that time period.  In addition, the agreement resolves issues relating to In-range Progression by providing improved procedural clarity and efficiency, and includes modest annual parking fee increases.

The agreement will become effective upon ratification by the CSU Board of Trustees.
