Ready to strike

CSU Faculty union sets Spring strike date

Faculty at the California State University’s 23 campuses are poised to strike this spring if a salary deal with CSU management isn’t reached soon, according to a press release from the California Faculty Association.

The CFA’s board of directors voted Monday (Feb. 8) to begin the five-day strike on April 13. The union has asked for a 5 percent general salary increase for all faculty and an additional 2.65 percent raise for some members. CSU management offered a 2 percent increase. “We must take a stand so that we can support our families, protect our profession and provide high-quality education for our students,” CFA President Jennifer Eagan (pictured) said in the release.
