CSU faculty protest over executive pay raises
LONG BEACH, Calif. (KABC) -- Cal State University faculty members will hit the picket lines at all 23 campuses Tuesday and Wednesday to protest the school system's policies and contract proposals.
The protests are in response to an administrative decision to withhold negotiated pay raises for the faculty while raising the salary of some executives.
University system officials say it would be financially irresponsible to pay about $20 million in faculty salary increases when the system has sustained deep cuts in state funding.
CSU faculty union members are also upset that the administration has drastically raised student tuition and increased faculty workloads.
A one-day strike at the CSU Dominguez Hills and East Bay campuses Nov. 17 will follow this week's protests.
