California State University Faculty Authorize Strike - Alexei Koseff, The Sacramento Bee

More than 94 percent of participants in the 10-day vote gave the California Faculty Association – which represents approximately 25,000 CSU professors, lecturers, librarians, counselors and coaches – permission to call a strike across the 23-campus system if it fails to reach an agreement on salaries for the 2015-16 academic year. The union is currently taking part in a fact-finding arbitration process with university officials. “The faculty are angry and justifiably so,” faculty association President Jennifer Eagan said during a press conference at San Jose State University. “Our employer has decided what the faculty is worth, and they have decided that we’re not worth that much to them.”
