Faculty and university executives are fighting over a labor dispute, despite an independent fact-finder issuing an opinion that the professors should receive the 5 percent raise they’re asking for.
CSU leaders are offering a 2 percent raise and say a 5 percent raise would cost the Cal State system too much money, estimated at $82 million.
Joining Insight to talk about the pay dispute is Kevin Wehr, a sociology professor at Sacramento State University and chair of the California Faculty Association bargaining team. He’s currently marching with other faculty members to the state Capitol to pressure lawmakers into passing pay-increase legislation.
