Instructors at Modesto Junior College and Columbia College near Sonora will strike Nov. 27 and 28 to protest what faculty calls unfair labor practices by their bosses at the Yosemite Community College District.
District administrators have said classes will not be canceled for 25,000 students at both campuses. The classes, labs and online courses presumably will be staffed with substitutes and faculty who cross picket lines.
The Yosemite Faculty Association, which is the union representing instructors, said 86 percent of members voted Friday, and 89.7 percent favored the two-day strike.
