Q: Why is AFT 2121 calling for a one-day strike?
A: We are calling for a one-day strike to protest District Unfair Labor Practices. By choosing to bargain in bad faith the District has derailed the negotiations process and forced us to take action. They have taken unilateral action on an item under negotiation and have intimidated our members during union activities; the District must remedy these actions for good faith negotiations to move forward.

Why are faculty fighting? Why are faculty voting to strike?
Nov. 12, 2015
During the accreditation crisis, City College students and workers fought alongside our community for CCSF. Now interim Chancellor Lamb and Special Trustee Lease intend to shrink classes by 26%, lay off more than a quarter of the faculty, and refuse to negotiate a fair faculty contract. We are coming together today: all campuses, all faculty, and all communities to continue the fight for the quality, diverse and accessible City College that San Francisco deserves!

STUDENTS, COMMUNITY STAND WITH FACULTY AND STAFF FOR ACCESS TO EDUCATION. FAIR CONTRACT FOR FACULTY NOW!
We, the undersigned City College of San Francisco students and San Francisco community members, are united with faculty against proposed 26% cuts to CCSF. Such massive cuts will decrease student access. Administration must plan to rebuild the college by using taxpayer monies to keep classes open and pay faculty and staff fair wages. Don’t hoard the money in ever-growing reserve funds.
During the accreditation crisis, City College students and workers fought alongside our community for CCSF. Now Administration intends to shrink classes by 26%, layoff more than a quarter of the faculty, and refuses to negotiate a fair faculty contract. Help us defend a City College for everyone. Speak up and share this petition!
AFT 2121 opposes massive cuts to CCSF!
Special Trustee Guy Lease: put away the wrecking ball!
Chancellor Lamb: stop the downsizing of CCSF!
City College Board of Trustees: stand up and defend City College and the students you were elected to serve!
AFT 2121 opposes the planned cuts of 26% to the City College of San Francisco. The administration, under unelected Special Trustee Guy Lease, announced a plan in contract talks to massively downsize the college. The public must be aware: Cuts of this magnitude will inevitably send the college into a further enrollment decline and entire programs will disappear. AFT 2121 will not standby while Guy Lease enacts a death spiral of austerity that eliminates classes, costs the jobs of a over a quarter of the current faculty, and reduces access to a quality college education for the people of San Francisco.
