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

CSEA News

Proposition 55 passes
California voters overwhelmingly approved Proposition 55 and made it clear that they don’t want our public schools and community colleges to return to the days of larger classes and widespread layoffs.

"We are grateful to the voters for supporting our schools and colleges," said Association President Ben Valdepeña. "This critical funding will allow us to continue rebuilding the programs and services that were cut during the recession. It means a brighter future for our students."

Paraeducator Conference
Join us as we celebrate our 20th year of the California Paraeducator Conference, March 14–16 at the Ontario Convention Center in Ontario, California. Ask your district to reserve funds to send you to the conference now.

Get active with CSEA
As a CSEA member, you are part of the largest classified union in the nation. Despite our size, CSEA remains an organization of people. As a member-run union, we rely on members to step forward and contribute new ideas and new energy.

There are many ways you can get active with CSEA. Local chapter meetings are open to all members and everyone is encouraged to attend. Talk with leaders of your chapter to find out what kind of help is needed. Whatever you choose to do, just remember that the only way for us to grow and improve is if new volunteers like you get involved.

Who is Rosie the Riveter?
Now a cultural icon symbolizing working women, female empowerment and solidarity, the name "Rosie the Riveter" was part of a campaign during the beginning of World War II to recruit women into the workforce.

Know Your Rights
As classified employees, we 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.
