​The following is a statement from the California State University Chancellor's Office:

“We have been informed that Teamsters Local 2010, which represents approximately 1,000 employees such as plumbers, electricians and other skilled trades workers systemwide, intends to conduct a one-day strike on November 14, 2023.

The California State University (CSU) and the Teamsters have reached impasse in their contract negotiations but are still engaged in the bargaining process under state law. Since the parties are still engaged in the impasse process, CSU does not believe the Teamsters' planned strike is lawful. Should a strike take place, all CSU universities will remain open and have contingency plans in place to maintain full university operations with as minimal disruption as possible for students, faculty, staff, and visitors to our campuses.  

CSU has offered a 15% compensation pool for a three-year period to Teamsters. The CSU remains committed to the collective bargaining process and reaching a negotiated agreement for increased compensation with the Teamsters, as we have done with five of our other employee unions in recent weeks. "
