CSU Faculty Could Strike For More Money

Faculty members from the California State University system are expected to protest today as they continue to push for a 5 percent increase in salary.

Currently the chancellor’s office has proposed a 2 percent increase, but more than 1,000 CSU faculty members are willing to march today as they demand the full 5 percent they have requested.

If they are unable to come to an agreement with their contracts then the California Faculty Association has already authorized a strike for union members.
