Faculty members at two California State University campuses in San Diego County plan to join a system-wide strike against the administration. CSU officials say they'll try to minimize any disruptions. KPBS Reporter Ana Tintocalis has more.
Union leaders representing CSU faculty members announced the results of a strike vote yesterday, which show 90-percent of its members support the work stoppage. That means faculty at San Diego State and Cal State San Marcos will take turns walking off the job for two days. CSU officials promise the campuses will be safe for students and staff if and when these rolling walkouts take place. Spokesman Paul Browning couldn't elaborate on specific contingency plans but says.

Browning: The campus will remain open and students are expected to continue attending classes and other university activities. The two-day rolling strikes will likely not impact more than one day of instruction per class for our students.
