CSU students, professors stage walkouts over raises

Professors, students and supporters at nearly every Cal State University campus will walk out of class Tuesday to call attention to stalled contract talks.

San Francisco State, Sonoma State, San Jose State and Cal State East Bay are taking part in the event. In the current state budget, professors were given a five percent pay raise that they would only get if state revenues met expectations. They have not done that, so the raise is now unlikely.

Faculty members have also voted to hold a day-long strike next Thursday.
