At 6 a.m. Monday morning, Oregon Tech’s faculty union went on strike.

Picket lines went up soon after on the Klamath Falls and Wilsonville campuses, their numbers increasing as the sun came up. By noon, roughly 100 people, including some students, held signs and chanted near the school’s main entrance at the intersection of Campus Drive and Dan O’Brien Way. One student even brought an accordion.
