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

CSEA News


Black Friday
Join the Black Friday Walmart protest
Join CSEA and other labor groups as we demand respect for workers at Walmart. Workers for the retail giant have been met with retaliation in their mobilization efforts to secure $15 an hour wages and full-time hours. Join us in supporting the massive demonstrations planned for Black Friday (Nov. 28), the biggest shopping day of the year.
Election
CSEA member mobilization leads important victories in November Election
Election Day resulted in important victories for California’s public schools as pro-education lawmakers were elected to state constitutional offices and to the Legislature. Numerous CSEA members and staff were also elected to local school boards and other offices.
Flu Safety
Protect yourself and your students from the flu
Infectious disease has taken center stage in the media lately, with fears of the Ebola Virus dominating news broadcasts. However, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), unless you’ve been to West Africa recently, you’re exponentially more likely to catch the seasonal flu.

Assistance Fund
Disaster relief available to members
CSEA’s Assistance Fund helps members recover from disasters and financial hardship. In response to the devastation caused by recent wildfires in Northern California, Association President Michael Bilbrey made disaster assistance funds available to affected CSEA members. Find out how you can help.

Michael Bilbrey
Not Just Teachers: Supporting Students’ Success
Association President Michael Bilbrey for the U.S. Dept of Education Blog:
As summer ends and the school year begins, we often think about teachers and students heading back to school. While teachers prepare lessons and students learn new concepts we can’t forget the service employees who provide support that enable the schools to run efficiently.

Classified Employees
Classified employees are the backbone of education
In the modern age, school districts could not function without classified school employees. These essential staff members perform a wide range of vital services for students, parents, teachers and administrators. This extraordinary workforce keeps our campuses safe, clean and organized. Most importantly, they strive to improve the lives of our students every day.
know your rights
Know your rights
Classified employees are afforded many basic rights by law or through collective bargaining. Learn about your rights on the job and what you can do to protect yourself if your rights are violated.
