KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. — Faculty went on strike this morning beginning at 6 a.m. to demand fair wages and workload at Oregon Tech.
Oregon Tech is the first public college in state history to have faculty go on strike.
Some students tell me adjunct teachers were no-shows for class today and frustration is running high.
On the first day of faculty and staff going on strike at Oregon Tech, some students showed up to empty classrooms.
“All of our class showed up, you know, all 52 of us came to this auditorium ready to learn and nobody was there,” said student, Natalie Allen.
