California State University faculty to strike for better pay

Faculty at California State University, the largest public university system in the US, will hold a series of four one-day strikes starting Monday across four campuses to demand higher pay and more parental leave for thousands of professors, librarians, coaches and other workers.

The union is seeking a 12% salary raise and an increase in parental leave from six weeks to a full semester.

The California State University chancellor’s office says the pay increase the union is seeking would cost the system $380m in new recurring spending.
