    Faculty rally demands change

    Chico State faculty members of the CSU Employees Union and the California Faculty Association rallied together on Friday to protest poor working conditions. Issues addressed were low salary increases, lack of transparency and abusive conduct in the workplace.

    “Our goal today was to keep the pressure on administration to let them know that we still have these concerns,” said Jessica Verardi, president of the CSU Employees Union chapter 302.

    Approximately 100 participants gathered in front of the Student Services Center and marched toward Kendall Hall chanting “We are union,” and “What do we want? Justice. When do we want it? Now,” in an effort to gain the attention of President Paul Zingg and other administration.

    “There are issues that are happening on campus that are affecting campus moral,” said Vincent Ornelas, co-chair of faculty rights with CFA. “The working conditions of the faculty have a tremendous impact on the students learning.”


    Charlie Turner, CFA Campus President and Chico State political science professor, mentioned if the efforts of the faculty are met, there will be a five percent salary increase opposed to the two percent being offered.
