On Dec. 18, the CFA Board of Directors unanimously voted for a system-wide strike in collaboration with Teamsters Local 2010 members between Jan. 22 and Jan. 26. 

“We said when we went on the rolling strikes on the four campuses that this was a taste. This is basically what we expected,” said Brad Erickson, president of the SFSU-CFA chapter. “We didn’t think that management would really come with a serious offer based on the four-day rolling strike.”

A five-day strike will be taking place on all 23 CSU campuses. The strikes will depend on the upcoming bargaining days with the CSU management on Jan. 8, 9, 11 and 12.
