Fresno State sees student and faculty protests
FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Fresno State students rallied on campus Tuesday to protest deeper cuts and increased costs to higher education.
While CSU students say they are paying too much, faculty members say they're not paid enough.
Faculty at all 23 CSU university campuses are picketing at some point Tuesday and Wednesday.
They are promoting a strike on Nov. 17 over pay.
The California Faculty Association says there is a major sticking point in contract negotiations, and that is the decision by CSU administrators not to grant equity raises for faculty, many of whom make less money than more recent hires.
Picketing is scheduled to take place at Fresno State tomorrow. Classes will be held as scheduled.
