Sacramento State Professors Protest Contract Negotiations
SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – Teachers at Sacramento State University have threatened to go on strike if they don’t get a better contract.
Several dozen faculty members protested on campus this morning, chanting and holding signs.
It’s part of a system wide effort to get administrators back at the bargaining table.
Teachers say the current offer isn’t fair.
“Fair means no takebacks. Right now what they are proposing is restrictions on our rights and our ability to actually do our job. There is nothing on the table as far as proposals from the Chancellor’s team other than takebacks and reductions,” said Kevin Wehr, PhD., California Faculty Association.
Just yesterday, the California Faculty Association voted overwhelmingly in favor of walking off the job if necessary.
Faculty on two campuses near Los Angeles are going on strike in a few weeks.
