PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Faculty and Staff Federation at the Community College of Philadelphia has voted NOT to strike.

The vote was overwhelmingly against a strike by the 1,400 faculty and staff members. But the union says it will engage in pressure tactics, like asking city council why administrators are getting wage increases while the union is not. Doctor Stephen Curtis, president of the community college, says that is not true.

“We’re not increasing administration salaries, we get the same health benefits that union members do, and unless or until there’s any kind of raise agree3d upon gof runion members, administration members will receive no raise at all.”

Curtis says he’d like union members to review the 5 year contract offer which includes a 10-point-5 percent raise over 5 years but is tied to state and city funding it receives.
