Cal State faculty to vote on major strike over contract

Posted: Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Faculty members at the California State University's 23 campuses are getting ready to vote on whether to permit their labor union to call a strike over stalled salary negotiations.

The 10-day strike authorization vote that starts Monday will be at least the fourth the California Faculty Association has held in eight years.

The union represents about 25,000 Cal State professors, lecturers, librarians, counselors and coaches.

At issue in the contract standoff is the size of pay raises union members will receive this school year.

The faculty association is seeking a 5 percent salary increase along with a 2.7 percent pay bump based on years of service.

The university is offering raises of 2 percent, which is what other CSU employees received.

No dates have been set for the threatened strike.
