Chico State has spoken on what the university plans to do during the California Faculty Association strike.

In a mass email sent by Drew Calandrella to students, the vice president for student affairs answered common questions students have about the upcoming strike and how it will affect them.

Calandrella states in the email that the campus will be open during the strike. If instructors are striking, classes may be canceled, but professors may assign something to make up the missing days.

Tuition will not be refunded if the strike occurs and students are not obligated to support the strike.

The CFA strike is planned to happen April 13-15 and April 18-19.

    I think the university should fire any professors that strike and just replace them with new ones. We live in a supply and demand economy, and it’s not like professors are in high demand…

    So the CSU system should just fire all these instructors, face massive amounts of litigation in repercussion, and just magically hire the massive pool of available professors that doesn’t actually exist.

    In the mean time, the people who are suffering are the students; facing delays in graduation due to classes being unavailable, facing more debt, more interest on loans already taken, and a reduction in the level of education due to the lack of properly tenured and educated instructors.

    I am sorry, but your ridiculously barbaric idea would never work in the real world, these issues are much more complex than you seem to be able to comprehend.
