Students for Quality Education takes action against tuition hike plan

Next Monday, May 2, CSU students will hold rallies and marches at five campuses to oppose a plan, under consideration by CSU Trustees, that could impose annual fee student hikes tied to inflation.


Chancellor visiting more campuses this term

Chancellor Timothy White continues his visits to CSU campuses through May and will participate in forums open to the campus communities.

The dates, as listed on the Chancellor’s web page, are CSU Bakersfield April 29; Sacramento State May 3; CSU Chico May 4; Sonoma State May 5; CSU Channel Islands May 10; and San Francisco State but the date there is yet to be determined.


Faculty at City College of San Francisco hold one-day strike

Facing management threats to eliminate a quarter of class offerings and layoff a quarter of the faculty, the embattled AFT 2121 took to the picket lines this morning for a one-day strike through 7:30 pm today.

Tim Killikelly, AFT 2121 President, wrote in the days leading up to the strike:


Faculty Rights Tip: United by Definition

In a previous faculty rights tip we mentioned Article 2: Definitions. Our Collective Bargaining Agreement is very specific about whom we are as faculty and it is very inclusive. The term “Faculty Unit Employee” unifies us all.
