Attention all new CSU employees! Have you been properly “onboarded”?
The Public Sector Employee Orientation Law, passed in 2017, requires public employers to provide union representatives access to new employees during their orientations. Assembly Bill 119 defines employee orientation as the onboarding process, which can happen in person, online or through other means. During the new employee orientation (NEO), new or recently hired employees learn about employment status, rights, benefits, duties and responsibilities, or any other employment-related matters.
CSU Employees Union and other unions have negotiated the particulars so new staff will learn about labor representation on their first day.
Every fourth Wednesday of the month, Michelle Markham makes sure she is present for the NEO at CSU Fullerton. As the Organizing Chair for the Fullerton Chapter of CSU Employees Union, Michelle welcomes new faces at the monthly employee orientations and provides them basic information about what a union is.
“I’m constantly recruiting. I hear employees complain about certain common issues throughout all campuses and I ask them: Are you involved with the Union?
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!
