During the accreditation crisis, City College students and workers fought alongside our community for CCSF. Now administration intends to shrink classes by 26%, lay off more than a quarter of the faculty, and refuses to negotiate a fair faculty contract.

City College of San Francisco administration are doing the work of rogue accreditor ACCJC. Our students deserve the best – we will not accept a downsized school or an unfair contract!

On April 27th, 2016, AFT 2121 will have a one-day ULP STRIKE at all City College of San Francisco campuses. City College faculty will withhold our labor, no classes will be held, no papers will be graded. Instead, faculty, students, and community supporters will picket CCSF locations throughout the city.

Community and students stand with us for the CCSF San Francisco deserves!

Picket Lines flyer_finalOn April 27th AFT 2121 will strike all City College of San Francisco Campuses for one day. We will have picket lines at 5 of our 9 campuses plus Gough Street. Picket lines begin at 8:00AM sharp!

The Chancellor, not wanting to confront our picket lines, has cancelled school for Wednesday in hopes of avoiding us. Our demands are not going away because she cancelled school, and neither are we. AFT 2121 officers met Monday evening and decided to alter the picket schedule slightly to take advantage of the new scenario.

  • Picket lines begin at 8AM, and we will run them until 11AM. 
  • At 12pm we will converge on the CCSF Civic Center Campus (1170 Market Street) for a major rally for the City College San Francisco deserves
  • We will resume afternoon picket lines at 2pm
  • There will be a social event at El Rio (3158 Mission St) at 7:30pm
