The American Federation of Teachers Local 2026 and the college have been trying to negotiate a new contract. Among the issues on the table is the workload: The college wants new faculty members to teach five courses a semester, instead of the current four.  

The last time CCP faculty went on strike was a two-week walkout in 2007. CCP President Dr. Donald Generals has said if there is a strike and there aren’t enough instructors, many classes for the school’s 28,000 students would have to be cancelled.
