A group of an estimated 1000 people—including a couple dozen from Cal Poly—marched outside the Board of Trustees' meeting at the Chancellor's office in Long Beach.

Earlier this month, California Faculty Association (CFA) members voted overwhelmingly to approve a strike should negotiations fail. The process is currently in a fact finding stage.

The CFA is asking for a five percent general salary increase for all faculty, while CSU management is offering a two percent increase for faculty in the second year of the contract.
