Dear Chapter Site Reps

I would like to take this time to thank each of you for all of your time and effort in making sure that CSEA is visible at all PUSD sites and for seeing that all classified employees on your sites are kept well informed by distributing surveys, chapter information and maintaining our CSEA bulletin boards. Without you we would not be able to promote the good and welfare of the organization to the members of this chapter. For this is a very valuable and important task to me personally as well as for the members and for that I am very grateful to you. Again thank you.
Alex Sutton, Chapter President

Condolences to families of Orland bus crash
The California School Employees Association sends its deepest condolences to the families of those students injured and killed in the tragic Orland bus crash.

"As an education community we come together and all share your loss."


  CSEA mobilizing to re-elect Tom Torlakson
CSEA members and staff statewide are stepping up efforts to re-elect State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson to another four-year term. Torlakson has long proven he is a friend to classified employees and understands the value of classified work.
     
  Administrator Ranking Survey
Have you ever wondered what CSEA members in another school district think of an administrator who might be applying for a job at your district? A survey, conducted for the first time in 2013, invited CSEA chapter leaders to offer their opinion on top administrators in their district. See how they rated.
     
  Governor proposes $10 billion increase in school funding

  Feds continue to tweak healthcare rules
Considering the complexity of the U.S. healthcare system and variations among the 50 states, it’s no surprise that federal and state agencies continue to respond to issues surrounding the implementation of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).
     
  Retirement security of public employees under attack again
An anti-worker politician continues his effort to break the promises to employees on their retirement by introducing an initiative that would allow unilateral cuts to retirement savings.

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.
     
  Make the most of your retirement
Whether you're retiring in 2013 or in 2050, you should attend a free CSEA Pre-Retirement Seminar in your area. You'll get the information you need to maximize your pension benefits.
