I have been contacted by faculty (not the usual suspects) this morning who say that faculty should strike. I must tell you that only the union can call a legitimate strike. If you “strike” on your own, you put yourself at jeopardy.

I was also reminded that managers recently received a 5% pay increase.

Members have the power to vote “no” on the agreement. You can send the union back to the table until they agree to something that helps faculty.  It can be scary to give up the short term gain, no matter how small, in favor of holding out for the long term victory.  But, that’s how change is made. You won’t have another chance until the 2016 contract.
