CFA to announce authorization vote results Monday

If a strike is authorized, it does not mean a strike will actually occur
Created by Ariana Powell on Oct. 27.

The California Faculty Association will be announcing the results of its authorization vote on Monday.

The voting period started on Oct. 21 at 9 a.m. and ends on Oct. 27 at 5 p.m. The results will determine whether or not faculty members will strike.

A “yes” vote would mean sending “a powerful signal to [CSU] management that we are prepared to withhold our labor to get the contract we [faculty members] deserve,” according to the CFA.

A “no” vote would mean accepting CSU management’s last offer of a 5% general salary increase, as well as the minimal movement on other proposals such as pay equity for lowly-compensated faculty members and an increase in parental leave, according to the CFA.

To see all CFA and CSU management proposals and counterproposals, go here.

If the results authorize a strike or other similar job actions, it does not, however, mean a strike will happen.

A strike can only occur if the statutory process, ending with the current fact-finding session, ends and the “no-strike” clause of faculty members’ contract is voided, according to the CFA.

However, if the fact-finding session ends with a satisfactory result and a deal between the CFA and CSU management is made, a strike may not occur.

For more information on the strike and strike authorization, go here or here.  

The Orion will release an update when the results are announced on Monday.
