The Unity Campaign: Coming to a CSU campus near you!

Faculty at CSU campuses across the state will be kicking off a CFA Unity Campaign April 22 to May 3. 

The statewide campaign, led jointly by Lecturer and tenure track faculty, is focused around activities that highlight commonalities between all faculty groups, and specifically demonstrate how issues facing Lecturers and professors are interconnected. 

The Unity Campaign will advance the shared interests and combined power of all faculty, raise the consciousness of faculty and students about social justice issues facing CSU faculty, build membership and faculty power, and encourage non-members to join CFA and further strengthen the union.

At Fresno State, a number of creative actions are planned, including raffling off three Lecturer Survival Kits. These “rolling offices,” contained in a rolling laptop case, include markers, dry erasers, note pads, pens, Red Bull, granola bars, coffee, Lecturer Handbooks, CFA swag and more!

The Chico State CFA Chapter is planning a two-part effort. On April 23 and 24, members will be hall-walking to build greater unity between Lecturers and tenure track faculty and discussing how to address issues like workload and campus safety. 

On May 10, Chico State activists will host an unemployment workshop, where Lecturers can learn about their right to collect unemployment benefits during the summer months.  

Other chapters also are planning a myriad of events, including forums, hall walking, bargaining focus group discussions, workshops, and socials.
