New MnSCU Contract Set to Increase Faculty Pay

11.2% Over Next Two Years

If the administration thinks that a 5.5 - 7.5% increase in tuition is "minimal," then why not raise staff and faculty pay by this minimal amount?

The Minnesota State College Faculty union represents about 4,400 faculty members at Minnesota's 25 state community and technical colleges.

Union President Greg Mulcahy and MnSCU Chancellor James McCormick said in a joint statement they were pleased to have reached a settlement.

If union members approve the deal it will go the MnSCU board for a vote, then to the Legislature for approval.

The IFO estimated the contract would deliver an 11.2 percent salary hike for its members through this year and next.
