CCSF faculty plan strike to defend the college San Francisco deserves

On Wednesday, April 27, City College faculty plan to walk out on strike for one day to send a clear message to CCSF administration and the City College Board of Trustees: “We stand united for the CCSF that San Francisco deserves.”

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.

We have become increasingly frustrated with administration’s insistence on cutting classes by 26% and keeping salaries low while stockpiling money into reserves. Faculty salaries in particular remain below 2007 levels even before adjusting for inflation. Members of AFT 2121 voted last month to authorize a strike by a 92% margin after more than a year of unproductive bargaining.

We envision a City College with a broad mission – one that cares for students and workers. San Francisco needs the educational opportunities CCSF creates for Bay Area working families and the vibrancy it brings to our economy and culture. Faculty are united in defending the college and its students, including plans to make CCSF free for San Franciscans, who deserve quality public higher education.

We hope you will join us on April 27th.
