New MnSCU Contract Set to Increase Faculty Pay
11.2% Over Next Two Years

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.
