California State University faculty would get a pay raise under a tentative deal reached on a three-year contract.

The California Faculty Association says in a press release that its bargaining team decided unanimously last week to recommend that union members ratify the agreement for the 2014-2105 school year.

The CFA says all faculty members would receive general pay hikes, though no amounts are specified. Salary and benefits negotiations can be reopened for years two and three of the contract.

The faculty union represents more than 23,000 Cal State professors, lecturers, librarians, counselors and coaches.
