The California Faculty Association and the California State University have reached an impasse in contract negotiations.

The results of a strike authorization vote by the association are expected to be announced Wednesday morning. 

The California State Faculty Association represents 26,000 employees on 23 California State University system campuses. 

The Association wants a 5 percent general salary increase for all faculty. 

Cal State University has offered a 2 percent increase. 

Faculty Association members had two options during the vote that took place between October 19 and October 28:

To authorize the CFA Board of Directors to call a strike if contract negotiations failed; Or, not to give strike authorization to the board and accept the 2 percent salary increase offered by the CSU.
