Know Your Rights

Know your rights is a training offered by the Orange Field Office. The training covers your basic rights. Many of the basic rights for school employees are contained in the California Education Code. CSEA has been instrumental in lobbying the State Government for these rights. These rights are the foundation upon which your individual collective bargaining agreements are negotiated.

California Education Code is the foundation of your basic rights. Your basic rights can not be negotiated away. Collective bargaining agreements can only improve upon your basic rights. The enforcement of these rights is managed by your union. Your collective bargaining agreement covers hours, wages, and terms and conditions of employment. Even if it is not in your collective bargaining agreement the law protecting the rights of public employers, public employees, and your workplace is vast and it is still there protecting you.

There are also additional rights that are not formally negotiated. For example school districts create their own board policy and in Merit System Districts there is an additional set of regulations governed by the Personnel Commission.

CSEA has created a Know Your Rights module intended to give you a general description of your rights as well as information on who to contact if you think your rights may have been violated. CSEA has site representatives, job stewards, grievance committees, and chapter officers, as well as CSEA staff, to help you ensure your rights are protected.

If you would like to learn more about your rights you can view the Know Your Rights Module 311 on the CSEA web site under the publications section. You can also ask your chapter leadership or labor relations representative about the Know Your Rights training.
