CFA Pickets Today and Tomorrow, Strikes Next Week

California Faculty Association (CFA) will be doing informational picketing on CSU campuses statewide today and tomorrow, and plans a one-day strike on November 17 at CSU East Bay and CSU Dominguez Hills.

CFA's Board of Directors voted unanimously to authorize the strike after CFA's membership voted 93% in favor of a one-day strike on one or more campuses. CFA President Lillian Taiz said we must now send the Chancellor a plain and simple message about his skewed priorities.

CFA's most recent bargaining update notes that:

the Chancellor recently rejected a second neutral fact-finder’s recommendations that faculty be paid part of the salary increases negotiated in our last contract. That action, his relentless push for hikes in student fees, and his lavish giveaways to executives bespeak a vision for the CSU that hurts students, faculty, and the CSU itself.
