President Pat Gantt
Incorporated in 2005 after serving its members as a division of the California State Employees Association for more than 70 years, the California State University Employees Union has built up a rich record of achievements on behalf of its 15,000 represented employees.
At this site, you’ll learn about CSUEU's 24 chapters, its bargaining units and its staff, along with important news about the California state budget process and its impact on state employees.
Our purpose is to maintain the highest possible quality of life of all our members and their families by negotiating a strong living wage, augmented by employer and union benefits. Our focus is protecting, maintaining and enhancing wages, hours and working conditions for our bargaining units and represented members. Our vision is a time when education becomes such a high statewide priority that funds are generously allocated in each year’s state budget for the CSU to fulfill its loftiest educational goals while providing its staff with consistently excellent salaries and benefits, all for the betterment of California’s future.
The achievements of the CSUEU have been the result of the dedication, imagination, and hard work of our members, chapters, bargaining units and staff. I thank them all and invite you to join us in our vision for a better California.
