Labor Studies at City College This Fall


Members,

 The San Diego and Imperial Counties Labor Council has developed a great partnership with City College in recent years to teach labor studies classes for our members and the community at large.  It’s provided a great opportunity to educate San Diego about their rights at work and the rich history of the Labor Movement.  This fall Jim Miller will be teaching Labor and Politics on Tuesday nights, and Dovie King will be teaching Labor Law on Monday nights.  Anyone who hasn’t had the opportunity to learn from Jim and Dovie are definitely missing out, and this is a great opportunity to grow in the labor movement or get a first good introduction.

 It is also very important that we show broad interest in these classes if we want them to continue to be offered in the future.  This is an important part of building a stronger labor movement in the broader community and we should do our best to support it.  Click here: LS 108 and 102 flyer f13.pdf  for information about the classes.

Flu Safety
Protect yourself and your students from the flu

Veterans Day: Honor American Heroes Nov. 11, 2014
Veterans Day is a time when Americans honor those who have served in the U.S. Military—a time to express gratitude to those who have made great sacrifices to preserve our freedom.

Many military veterans have gone on to serve California’s public schools as classified school employees. There are a variety of reasons why CSEA members who are veterans served in the military. Some were drafted, some followed long family traditions and others felt a duty to defend their country.
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.

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.
