There have been many questions, and emotions, since the announcement last week that our Steps Bill AB 369 has been placed "on hold." Some took the news to mean the legislation was 1. "Dead" or 2. We have failed.
Neither could be further from the truth.
In her message to CSUEU members, Assemblymember Dr. Shirley Weber (D-San Diego) says: "Right now, we are in a favorable position for success. AB 369 has overwhelming bipartisan support from my colleagues in the Legislature, the CSU has had several unflattering audits exposing its financial and personnel issues, and, for the first time, a Governor is personally standing with us on this issue. The CSU is on its heels. "
The "on hold" status of AB 369 simply means we can re-activate the bill any time during the next legislative session. For the first time in 23 years since the CSU unilaterally withheld merit pay for Support Staff, we have a governor who is willing to order the University to negotiate with the CSUEU in good faith to restore salary steps.
Our voices have been heard and the governor has indicated his interest in elevating the need for merit salary steps for our members at the CSU. In light of recent commitments by the Newsom administration, it was determined that the best path forward is to hold AB 369 in the Senate while the CSU is given a final opportunity to proactively and meaningfully negotiate merit salary steps.
We are optimistic that with active engagement from Governor Newsom, and the strength of our unions, we can work together to address our workers' right to merit steps and stop salary inversion. AB 369 will remain active in next year’s legislative session and will remain an important tool to hold the CSU accountable!
A message from CSUEU President Neil Jacklin
On Labor Day, Americans of all backgrounds come together to celebrate and honor workers’ contributions that lift up our nation. From farms to factories, from schools to skyscrapers, nothing gets built or done without human labor.
And when we join together, in organized coalitions or unions, we are unstoppable.
The massive, grassroots mobilization we see today, among gig workers and teachers and fast-food workers, is an unmistakable national movement demanding a more just economy for all.
Summoned to answer to a highly critical state audit, CSU Chancellor Timothy White faced a room full of skeptical legislators, employees, and students who repeatedly questioned why student tuition increased and staff were furloughed even as the University sat atop a massive surplus.
The nearly-four-hour legislative hearing was a significant win for CSU Employees Union members who had worked with Assemblymember Sharon Quirk-Silva in calling for a rigorous examination of CSU’s multiple pots of money.
Our Union’s efforts to demand greater accountability from the CSU rests on a simple principle: All stakeholders should have input in how the University manages public funds and whether they are being invested in quality education for students and quality jobs for frontline staff.
