Cal Poly faculty to receive 10.5 percent raise

April 9, 2016

Cal Poly LargeJust days before Cal Poly professors were to begin a five-day strike, the California State University System and the California Faculty Association agreed Friday to a tentative contract agreement.

After almost a year of wrangling over salaries at the CSU’s 23 campuses, an agreement to provide a staggered pay increase of 10.5 percent over the next two years was reached. The deal will provide raises to approximately 26,000 professors, lecturers, librarians, counselors and coaches.

Before Friday’s agreement can be ratified, it needs final approval by union members and the Cal State Board of Trustees.

On June 30, faculty members will receive a 5 percent raise in pay and another 2 percent increase follows on July 1. On July 1, 2017, the final 3.5 percent raise will kick in.


No unions… period. The regulatory environment is already skewed to the employees’ favor both public and private. Go get a job in the real world and see how you fair. Better yet, go try and create a business and then we can talk.

The gift that keeps on giving, oh yes, add it to their pensions too. Soon only the most spoiled can afford Cal Poly until they get displaced by the foreign students. The snow ball is already rolling, Big City here we come! More Gov jobs and a greater need for more of everything! Soon the bottom land dirt will be paved over leaving just the Prado Road Endangered Feces Farm.


I really feel badly for today’s youth. When I began college, CSU was out of the question but community college could still be had for what equalled a night out on the town.

It felt great to be able to learn for so little. In fact, I met the greatest people at CC than CSU.

Now, you have to go broke or have somebody rich put you through either.

And, this is where it all begins. Any form of higher learning, that is. It affects the entire economy. In turn, we will become of nation of losers, rather than winners. That’s the absolute truth. We’ve lost to our own bureaucracy.


Keep voting the bums out.


I hear you, and I want to agree with you. But I just looked at Cal Poly’s fee schedule online, and they estimate tuition at $9000/year.

It’s a forecasting question with simple math: Would someone likely be better off with a CP degree (and the knowledge it represents) and $36K fewer dollars? Or would they be better with the $36K? Everybody gets to make their own decision.

… now … back to our regularly-scheduled Bloated Governments rant …
