Faculty at City College Declare Impasse Over Wages

In San Francisco, hundreds of faculty members and their supporters gathered at the City College campus, to support the Faculty Union's effort to bargain for a new fair labor contract. The rally came a day after the union declared it had reached an impasse in negotiations with management. The union's bargaining team said the district administration presented no new economic proposals in yesterday's meeting. Faculty members are demanding a much-needed pay increase, as their wages are lower than they were in 2007. However, the administration says there is no impasse, and the faculty union needs to return to the bargaining table.
