2018 in Membership
So you’ve been a Union member with the CSU Employees Union since forever. Why do you need to renew your membership?
First, super-brief background:
The recent Supreme Court ruling on Janus vs. AFSCME was meant to be a blow against organized workers. But we're still standing. The case was argued by the National Right to Work Legal Defense Foundation - a group whose sole purpose is to break unions. Funded by billionaires and corporations, the so-called "Right to Work" movement aims to strip workers' rights and suppress wages.
We have a different plan.
As long as CSUEU stands strong, we will be able to continue to push for better wages, working conditions, and respect for the support staff that keep CSU campuses running.
Below is a Q&A on membership renewal.
Why do I need to renew my membership?
In order to have a strong union, we believe everyone represented by CSUEU should pay their fair share to support our union's activities to improve the lives of workers.
By renewing your membership you strengthen and protect the CSUEU from anti-union forces that are actively attacking worker wages, benefits and working conditions. Let's stand together. Renew today.
How is the "new" card different from the "old" card?
When you originally joined the Union, you signed a card that tied your membership to the life of the contract, typically three years. With the new card, your financial commitment is for one year and automatically renews every year unless you choose to drop. This helps our Union better plan its annual budget.
CSUEU is also being proactive and protecting the Union - and its membership - from potential lawsuits that arise from the Janus v AFSCME ruling.
Why is CSUEU doing this now?
We (CSUEU) are growing and changing to keep up with the times. We're updating our website to be more interactive and user-friendly. You can now sign up or renew your membership fully online.
By renewing your membership, you are strengthening our Union, protecting our negotiated wages, benefits and working conditions and preserving all the progress we've achieved together.
Remember: You can now sign up or renew your membership fully online.
