Importance of Settling the Contract Between the CSU and CFA

Resolution Emphasizing the Importance of Settling the Contract

Between the CSU and CFA

Adopted February 19th, 2007

Whereas,      The Associated Students is the representative body and official voice of the students on Humboldt State University’s Campus; and

Whereas,      it is a part of the mission to represent, serve, and protect the collective interests of students on this campus; and

Whereas,      the climate that currently exists in the contract negotiation process undermines morale at all levels, compromises the efforts to provide quality instruction to students and damages the ability to recruit and retain current the students, quality faculty, staff and administrators; and

Whereas,      Rapid resolution of the issues and adoption of a fair and equitable contract with the CSU will allow for this concerning climate to dissipate, and for students to continue to benefit from a superior education at HSU; therefore be it

Resolved,      That the Associated Students recognizes that it is neither the role nor the responsibility of the students of HSU to participate in contract bargaining between the CFA and CSU; rather it is the role of the Associated Students to advocate for actions and policies that produce a quality educational system; and be it further

Resolved,      That the Associated Students urges negotiators for the CSU and CFA to use the fact-finding process as a means to reach a reasonable solution that addresses the critical campus issues without resorting to imposition or job actions; and be it further

Resolved,      That the Associated Students any tactics that divide, conquer and manipulates the student voice and interest; and be it further

Resolved,      That Associated Students considers student access to higher education in the CSU system a top priority and calls upon the State legislature and governor to adequately invest in student educational needs while strongly recommending that CFA and the CSU join student advocacy efforts; and finally be it

Resolved,      That the Associated Students of Humboldt State University forwards this resolution of endorsement to the CSU board of Trustees, the CFA, President Richmond, CSSA, and on campus and local media sources.
