California State University faculty and their supporters from across the state are gearing up to protest the CSU Trustees meeting in Long Beach next week. The faculty union, representing teachers, librarians, and counselors, has already authorized a strike if ongoing contract negotiations fail. Salary is the main point of contention; CSU has offered a 2 percent raise but faculty want 5 percent. A strike would impact over 450,000 students.
