Statewide/Chapter Elections 2015

Welcome to the 2015 CSUEU Elections Site!

Democracy is the cornerstone of our union. As members of CSUEU, we elect the representatives who negotiate our contracts, wages, benefits, hours, and working conditions. They also represent us in the halls of the Capitol and at the Chancellor's Office. They organize on campus and in our communities while managing our finances and running our chapters. Chapter and statewide elections put the members in charge of who will be their representatives and leaders (if only we could do that in the workplace!).

The courageous men and women who came before us in the labor movement fought, and some died, for workplace democracy, particularly for union elections. We encourage every member at every chapter to participate in this hallowed process.

Currently, CSUEU has just completed our second round of General Council Elections and is preparing for a third round.

The General Council convention is scheduled to be held October 11, 2015 at the Red Lion Hotel Woodlake Convention Center Sacramento. At this convention, elected Delegates will participate in the governance of CSUEU and CSEA, which will include debating and voting on resolutions affecting how CSEA and CSUEU operate and adopting budgets for both organizations. The duties of GC Delegates include attending the General Council convention in October and acting as a liaison between your Chapter and the General Council.

Each CSUEU Chapter will receive one delegate per 200 members or major fraction thereof (Chapters with less than 200 members will receive exactly one delegate.) Delegates are elected by and from the members of the Chapter. Your Chapter President is a delegate by virtue of holding the office of Chapter President.

The term of office for Delegates in 2015 is three years and begins with the October 11, 2015 General Council meeting.

Chapters that will need to have a third round of General Council elections due to there not being enough candidates to fill all anticipated slots are:

301 – Humboldt
302 – Chico
307 – San Jose
308 – Stanislaus
314 – Dominguez Hills
315 – Long Beach
