CSUEU is working
with the CSU, Gov. Gavin Newsom (through the

continue to improve the salaries of CSU support staff.
During his term as
Governor, Newsom expanded paid family leave, guaranteed that
every worker receives paid pandemic sick leave, achieved
universal pre-K education for all children, provided $600
stimulus checks for those earning less than $75,000 a year and
protected millions of renters from eviction.
STOP the Recall.
