Message from AVP for Human Resources Lori Gentles
The California Faculty Association (CFA), the bargaining unit representing faculty employees for CSU, has voted to strike on Nov. 17 at two of the 23 CSU campuses -- CSU East Bay and Dominquez Hills. San Francisco State University will remain open during any and all job actions initiated by CFA. Student instruction and other student services will continue during this activity. The University and its employees are committed to providing services to our students.
To ensure the continuation of services during the CFA job action scheduled for Nov. 17, we know that you will come to work and perform your job duties, unless you have previously requested and have been granted leave time.
The CSU understands that this is a difficult time for all CSU employees. We are all frustrated by the massive cuts in state support to the CSU's budget and what the system has endured just to keep campus doors open. As a result, we need to focus our collective energy on advocating for the state to reinvest in higher education and to make funding for the CSU a priority in the state budget. The University appreciates your loyalty and your cooperation during this period.
The Academic Senate will meet Tuesday from 2 to 5 p.m. in the Nob Hill Room of the Seven Hills Conference Center.
