THE STRIKE IS ON...and going strong!!!

5:30AM to 8:30PM daily

This strike is sanctioned by the
Monterey Bay Central Labor Council, AFL-CIO.


Why are the teachers striking?
- They have exhausted all options and now have no other recourse but to strike.
- They have been bargaining for more than two years. It’s stand they must take.
- Their salaries are at or near the bottom of all faculty in the CA community colleges -
and this is one of the highest cost of living regions in the state.
- The college president’s $224,000 salary ranks near the very top of all CA community colleges
(more than the Vice President of the United States) - and his salary reflects an astounding 82% increase in the last six years!
