CSU Faculty Union Calls For Strike

SAN FRANCISCO (CBS / AP) — The California State University faculty union is calling for a one-day strike at two CSU campuses to protest the administration’s decision to withhold negotiated pay raises.

The California Faculty Association said Wednesday it plans to hold a “concerted action” that may include a strike Nov. 17 at the East Bay and Dominguez Hills campuses. Members have been asked to authorize a strike.

Union leaders say faculty members also plan to conduct informational picketing at all 23 Cal State campuses on Nov. 8 or 9.

The faculty union decided to call for the job actions after administrators decided not to pay salary increases negotiated for the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 academic years.

CSU officials say the faculty pay raises would not be appropriate when the university is facing a severe financial crisis.

    How can you expect a pay raise when they are trying to cut cost? No one in the private sector seen a raise the last few years. Lucky we have jobs.

    Liberals do not understand what a financial crisis is and they sure don’t care about the students. They want more money!!!!!!!!! Thug Unions say strike, so they strike!!!!! Public personnel should not belong to Unions, or at the least, they should not be allowed to strike.

  • Reality Check

    Sorry my liberal homies, no one is getting pay raises right now except for the executives running things. No way anyone else is going to get a raise. You do keep up with current events and realize the economy is in the toilet and someone just flushed, right?
