SF State University faculty to vote on whether to strike for fair wages

SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — San Francisco State University faculty members are expected to vote to strike for a fair wage on Monday.

The majority of CAL State University employees are said to vote on whether they will strike over stalled salary negotiations.

The California Faculty Association proposed a 5% general salary increase for faculty represented in the 23 campuses of the California State University. The Board of Trustees rejected the union’s proposal, offering a meager 2%, according to the California Faculty Association.

“We have a vision of what quality public higher education should look like and faculty are fighting for that vision,” said SF State CFA President Tully.

“After years of stagnant faculty wages, the faculty on our public university campuses are angry and we are ready for this strike vote,” said CFA President Jennifer Eagan.

KRON 4’s Terisa Estacio spent the morning with interviewing faculty. Check out the video above for more.
