CSUEU Countdown Top 5 List of Reasons to VOTE NO.
Vote NO - This is CSUEU's recommendation for the Gov. Gavin Newsom Sept. 14 Recall Election.
We urge you to “Vote NO” on the recall – the sole issue being decided in the election – and return your ballot today! You should have already received a ballot at your home. You do not need to vote for any of the nearly 50 alternate candidates. Simply “Vote NO” on whether Gov. Newsom should be removed from office.
With the special recall election occurring on an unusual date, there could be a very low voter turnout, and it will be critical that those who oppose the recall vote! Not voting will not mean that you oppose the recall. Only by voting NO will your voice be heard! Read the statement by President Catherine Hutchinson.
Gov. Newsom has been a strong supporter of labor, and his administration has actively supported CSUEU’s efforts to gain salary steps for CSU support staff. Most recently, Newsom signed budget language directing the CSU to work with CSUEU to hire an independent firm to assess support staff salary disparities. The budget bill (SB 129 Section 220 (k)) contains legislative intent that CSU and the unions should request money from the state budget to fund the recommendations of the study.
As Governor, Newsom has expanded paid family leave, guaranteed that every worker receive 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. Vote NO.
