SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) – California State University and its faculty union have reached a tentative agreement on a four-year contract that would avert strikes threatened for the fall.

The university said Tuesday that the settlement stipulates no raises for the past two years, but the issue could be revisited for 2012-13 and 2013-14.

The agreement preserves job stability provisions for lecturers and provides for faculty input in determining class sizes.

The agreement must be ratified by the California Faculty Association and the Board of Trustees.

The contract affects 23,000 professors, counselors and librarians at CSU’s 23 campuses across the state.
