The Collective Bargaining Agreement between the Connecticut State University American Association of University Professors and the Connecticut Board of Regents is referred to as The Contract. The Contract is a document that has been negotiated between the CSU-AAUP Negotiating Team and the Board of Regents (BOR) Negotiating Team. Thus, many sections of it have been crafted through compromise and do not represent the optimal conditions that either side would desire. However, it is a legal document and both parties to the Contract – the CSU-AAUP and the BOR are obliged to adhere to its provisions.
On July 17, 2017, 92 percent of CSU-AAUP voting members cast their ballots in favor of the 2016-2021 CSU-AAUP/BOR Contract.
