A California State University Board of Trustees committee is expected to vote at 10 a.m. Tuesday in Long Beach, to ratify the contract between the CSU and the California Faculty Association. 

The California Faculty Association already ratified the agreement.

The Trustees’ approval will end a bargaining process that started in 2014.

The CSU offered a 2 percent salary increase, the faculty group wanted 5 percent.

The CFA, which has 26,000 members, voted to strike at the 23 CSU campuses if they didn't get the raise they wanted.

Just a week before a planned 5-day strike, both sides reached a tentative agreement.

The deal gives the CFA a 10.5 percent raise spread out over three fiscal years.
