Chico State adjunct faculty members will be tabling to express grievances concerning low salary, poor working conditions, job insecurity and large workloads relative to tenure-track faculty outside of Glenn Hall, Wednesday, Feb. 25 from 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

The demonstration is in response to an open letter released by California Faculty Association Lecturer’s Council, who represent over 23,000 California employees, officially announcing National Adjunct Walkout Day.

The statement calls for adjunct, tenured and tenure-track faculty to use the day to take part in symbolic gestures to show solidarity for contingent instructors, coaches, librarians and counselors alike.

Chico State faculty members have decided to conduct informative tabling to properly adhere to collective bargaining agreements that bar the majority of contingent faculty from an actual walkout protest.

According to a report by the American Association of University Professors, 76.4 percent of U.S. faculty across all institutional types are adjunct professors.

Associate Vice Presidents of CFA, Jonathan Karpf and Leslie Bryan,wrote, “The CFA Lecturers’ Council acknowledges that within many community colleges and universities, adjunct faculty constitute an unrepresented or under-represented majority, lacking rights, representation and recourse.”
