Several members of the California Faculty Association celebrated the ratification of the tentative agreement negotiated between the union and management of the California State University system on the free speech lawn May 4.
The CFA handed out slices of cake, bags of chips and Subway sandwiches to students and faculty members.
“We’re celebrating by giving away food,” said Douglas Domingo–Forasté, the CFA CSULB Chapter president. “It seemed like a nice thing to do [for] the faculty and students at the end of the semester.”
The CFA members approved the tentative agreement with the California State University system, with 97 percent of those who voted in favor of the deal.
The online ballot was held April 22–29. Of the 23,000 CFA members, 63 percent voted.
