Union Power Is People Power (last week)
CSUEU Demands Salary Movement! With enthusiastic support from members across the Office of the Chancellor, CSUEU put forth a bold proposal to fix the broken compensation system during the third round of CSUEU/CSU contract negotiations, held in Long Beach yesterday, March 14. “Our proposed Article 20 (Salary) overhaul introduced multiple methods to provide our members with predictable movement through their salary ranges over time,” explains VP for Representation Rocky Sanchez. The union’s proposed compensation program structural reform includes implementation of a quartile system and annual step increases, along with yearly General Salary Increases. Stipends, bonuses, shift differentials, and provisions involving emergency pay and weekend work—all in addition to In-Range Progression—are also proposed. Each one of these changes provides the CSU the opportunity to provide CSUEU employees upward mobility through the salary ranges, whereas in the past they have stagnated in their salaries.   Sanchez adds, “These changes are long overdue in order to fix the current broken system—a system that the CSU itself broke some 20 years ago, when it imposed a dysfunctional last, best offer during stalled contract negotiations.” Capping several days of high-profile ...

Management Seeks to Slash Union Rights (2 weeks ago)
CSU’s Message to Its Employees: No Union, No Voice! In the second round of contract negotiations, held at CSU East Bay last week, February 28-March 2, management made one thing clear when it rejected CSUEU’s proposed employee rights-centered preamble to the collective bargaining agreement: They do not want a union, and they do not want us to use our voice! This was also evident in management’s first written proposals: Restricting employees’ and their representatives’ right to present contract violations through the grievance procedure Eliminating from the contract management’s commitment to good faith consideration of grievances Weakening the internal job application process by eliminating preference to employees currently in our bargaining units In cases of rejection during probation, eliminating the appeal process currently in the contract Strangling union stewards’ ability to represent members by requiring them to ask for release time to investigate potential contract violations, thereby domineering and controlling grievance handling Allowing managers to use operational need, potentially deterring a grievant before he or she ever meets with a union representative Limiting union leave, thereby cutting the CSUEU bargaining team to half ...

Management Continues to Threaten Retirement Benefits (last month)
The CSUEU bargaining team met with management Tuesday through Thursday, February 14, 15, and 16. Following up on its “sunshine” proposals last month involving Articles 20 and 21, CSU management declared its intention to discuss employee contributions to pre-funding of retirement medical plans and extension of the time required for vesting in retirement medical plans. A potential long-term issue facing public employees, retirement medical plans have been a hot topic at bargaining tables with all state employee groups over the past year. Management also voiced its intention to discuss increases in campus parking fees and mandatory employee contributions to CalPERS pension plans, the latter in the context of the Public Employees’ Pension Reform Act (PEPRA). However, management offered zero concrete proposals or details. The CSUEU bargaining team stood strong and asked tough questions regarding each of these topics. CSUEU also proposed an employee rights-centered preamble to the collective bargaining agreement to highlight a mutual commitment to the importance of staff. Among the core values proposed by CSUEU in this document: We believe in the right to a competitive compensation structure with predictable movement ...
