CSU, Union Talk Possible Settlement
March 28, 2007 9:40 AM
The contract between Cal State University and the union representing 23,000 faculty members has been extended through April 6, as both sides return to the bargaining table in an effort to prevent a possible strike, according to seperate statements released by CSU and the California Faculty Association.
During the 10-day period, at least, there will be no work stoppages in the 23 campus CSU system.
The two sides agreed to use a report by an independent fact finder as a "framework" for settling the 22-month long contract dispute, and averting what would be the largest strike by higher-education employees in U.S. history.
Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger issued a statement praising the developments.
"I am pleased both sides worked together in good faith to reach a framework for an agreement that prevents a faculty strike and puts the students' needs first," Schwarzenegger said.
