A HISTORY OF FACULTY RAISES AT CUESTA 1999-2018

A HISTORY OF FACULTY RAISES AT CUESTA 1999-2018

I was asked by a colleague for help in finding a history of faculty salary increases from 1999-2008. Since I’ve been asked about salary history by others in the past, we thought we’d post it here. Thanks to the always-great work of Gaye Steil in HR, we got that data. One item of particular note can be found in the 2002-2005 CBA below. This was the first and only time that part-time faculty got a parity increase—and a sizeable one at that, spanning two years: “For academic year 2002-2003, the 2001-2002 Temporary (Part-time) and Full-time Overload Salary Schedules shall be increased by 7.0567% as of July 1, 2002; and shall be increased by 1% as of January 1, 2003.”

The only way that we were able to achieve that for our part-time colleagues was if full-time faculty agreed to a raise of only 1% for 2001-02. The full-time faculty rose to their best instincts and agreed to that to help their exploited sisters and brothers. Times have changed.

    Please edit this to show that there was also a 5% on schedule increase for FT and PT in 2016 and about $1,500 per person off schedule in ’14 (I think). Most of the salary gains in the time periods specified in this post were similar to COLA for those years. Not that getting COLA is a given so CCFT should be commended for those increases. There was a total of 0.68% COLA for 08-13 and pretty severe economic conditions.

      You are right, Greg. Since I didn’t get those years from HR, I was going by memory. It’s been changed. Thanks for the correction.

      I do beg to differ with you about COLA during the first union, however. We went beyond COLA (and sometimes by a large margin) every contract.
