Fellow Members,

Welcome back to a new school year.  I trust everyone had a restful and enjoyable vacation (for those who did have the opportunity to take one).

Your negotiations team worked very hard this past school year to negotiate a salary increase but we’re not finish yet.  We have much work ahead of us.  We will begin working on our new contract and we need your help.  We are going to send out surveys on health insurance, salary and other areas you are interested in seeing a change.  We want and need your opinion so we need everyone to complete the survey and return it.  We will let you know when and how the survey will be distributed.  We will discuss this at our site rep and chapter meetings.

I’m sure by now you heard of the LCFF and LCAP.  The Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) is the new school funding calculation in California.  The implementation of the LCFF is to give Local Education Agencies (LEAs), such as school districts, county offices of education, and their stakeholders more control over how to spend state funds to effectively deliver education programs. As part of the LCFF, LEAs must develop a Local Control Accountability Plan to set goals in eight priority areas specified by the state. Districts are required to consult with stakeholders, including classified school employees and their unions, to develop their LCAP goals. 

Our Association President Michael Bilbrey stated, “Schools will have more money, so it’s very important that classified employees get involved in that process.”  If you have children attending our schools we urge you to participate as a parent as well as a CSEA member.  We in Pomona have begun working on our goals.  The District has hired custodians and health clerks.  We will continue to work collaboratively to achieve our goal… to educate our students, the leaders of tomorrow!

We suffered cuts that resulted in lost jobs, furlough days and salary/hour reductions which definitely had an impact on our students. We need to work together to bring our students back to Pomona.  We are classified employees who are the educational support professionals and we do care! It’s time fellow members to get involve. Let our voice be heard!

Yours in Solidarity and Unity,
Mariana

Donate to members in need
Giving just seems to be in the blood of CSEA members. The Dorothy Bjork Assistance Fund was created to help members through tough times by providing three types of financial help: disaster, emergency and humanitarian assistance. The assistance fund doesn’t come from union dues at all —it relies solely and entirely on voluntary donations. Each February, we make an effort to replenish the Assistance Fund. Learn more about contributing to the fund and other ways to help.
