California Faculty Association (CFA) leaders estimated that over 1,000 California State University (CSU) faculty, as well as friends and students, from the 23 campuses across the state, gathered in downtown Long Beach today in hopes of influencing budget negotiations between the CSU Board of Trustees and CFA representatives.
Next week’s California State University Board of Trustees’ meeting will have a larger than normal audience, as over one thousand protesters are expected to march and demonstrate outside in support of the California Faculty Association’s (CFA) push for increased wages.
The California Faculty Association (CFA) voted to authorize a strike against the California State University (CSU) system in a vote that took place across the system’s 23 campuses, the faculty union announced today. Over 94 percent of the CFA members voted to strike, according to a release.
The California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) faculty will begin to participate Monday in a vote that could authorize a faculty strike, along with all California State University (CSU) campuses statewide, the California Faculty Association announced today. The vote comes in response to what they claim are years of refusal on behalf of the CSU Chancellor’s Office to lift faculty salaries to a living wage.
Last week, the California Faculty Association (CFA) announced its hosting of a vote among its members, beginning October 19 and running through October 28, to authorize actions that may include a strike in light of what they deem “unsatisfactory” collective bargaining negotiations.
