CSU faculty members at 23 campuses begin voting today on whether their union should launch a statewide strike.

California State University employees begin a two-week voting period Monday on whether to authorize their union to declare a strike. 

The vote comes after 22 months of negotiations that didn't produce a new contract.

If members of the California Faculty Association approve the walkout, it could be the largest university strike in state history.

The association represents professors, librarians, coaches and counselors across the school system's 23 campuses.

They are deciding whether the union's board of directors can call a two-day strike at an unspecified date.

The president of the association said faculty are fed up and have been asked to take a lot of hits while campus presidents are getting raises.

Under the "rolling strike" plan, groups of campuses would hit the picket line for two days each, one immediately after the other.

Voting runs until April 27.
