The San Francisco Strike officially began on November 6, 1968 when the Black Student Union in conjunction with the Third World Liberation Front called for a mass student strike in protest to the suspension of English instructor and Black Panther Party member George Murray. San Francisco State AFT faculty went on strike on January 6, 1969. Strike issues ranged from long standing grievances over workloads to more immediate matters of threatened civil liberties and academic freedom. The faculty strike lasted two months and was the longest teacher's strike in the history of California to that date. For further information on the history of the UPC or other UPC/AFT documents relating to the strike please refer to the Timothy J. Sampson Collection Accession no. 1987/59 in the Descriptive Guide for the textual collections.
