Faculty members at all 23 California State University campuses will begin voting Monday on whether they should strike if they are unable to come to a contract agreement with the university system.
The vote comes a week after mediation between the faculty and the university failed to end with a collective bargaining agreement.
The contract dispute will go to a neutral third party who will examine it and attempt to find a settlement, according to a news release from the California Faculty Association.
If that does not produce an agreement, CSU Chancellor Charles Reed can impose his last contract offer, according to the release. The faculty then has the option to strike.
