          depends on when an impasse is declared and rules say
          essentially 30 days after a declared impasse and no impasses
          has been declared yet

          I suspect a GE strike will not occur, due to the timing rules,
          during the first week of classes.

          On the other hand, I suspect a GE strike will occur.

      Last I looked, the Athletics department doesn’t pay any of the entertainers, so probably not.

      Plus, if they are like the Ath. Dept. on another campus I won’t name, a number of positions that would normally be Classified and thus represented by the union may have long ago been converted to Professional Faculty to avoid the pesky rules about paying overtime or other niceties that are covered in collective bargaining.
