We are looking for an Executive Director who is visionary, someone who consistently challenges leaders and staff to think critically in implementing California State University Employees Union/SEIU Local 2579 (CSUEU) programs to benefit our diverse community.
For 23 years, the CSU has unjustly withheld merit-based salary increases for its Support Staff. Now an audit has come out revealing the CSU has been hoarding $1.5 billion in surplus.
As State Auditor Elaine Howle wrote: "... the $1.5 billion in these outside accounts is available for CSU to spend at its discretion to support instruction and other operating costs."
It's time our Legislature demand accountability from the CSU. It is time for salary steps to be restored to Support Staff!

The latest state audit of the CSU, which was conducted at the urging of CSU Employees Union, shows that the University leadership has $1.5 billion outside of public view while raising student tuition and keeping employees' wages stagnant.
Even as the CSU has claimed "poverty" to justify raising student tuition, cutting classes and laying off frontline employees over the past decades, the audit shows that investment accounts held by the CSU outside of the state Treasury has a $1.5 billion balance.
Because these funds lack direct state oversight, little is known about their management or use.
CSUEU-sponsored legislation to restore 5% salary steps to Support Staff cleared a Senate Committee hurdle today. Assembly Bill 369 will advance next to the Senate Appropriations Committee.
The bill, authored by Assemblymember Dr. Shirley Weber and co-sponsored by SEIU and Teamsters, was approved by a 5-1 vote of the Senate Education Committee. Wednesday’s vote follows the Assembly's overwhelming approval of AB 369 by a 69-3 vote.
