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

Brown
Governor signs budget
California's new 2015-16 budget increases education funding over last year's level by $7.6 billion. When combined with increases of $6.1 billion in 2013-14 and 2014-15 as well as other one-time savings and adjustments in those years, there has been an increased investment in K-14 education of more than $14 billion.
Pensions
Proposed ballot measure takes aim at retirement security
Anti-pension politicians have revived their effort to deny retirement security for public servants such as classified employees, teachers, police officers and firemen by filling a statewide ballot initiative that would eliminate secure pensions for all new employees without guaranteeing any other type of retirement benefit in return.
