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...More

How to Access Public Information
How to get Information from Public Agencies . . . when they won’t provide it when you ask. Did you know that as an employee of a school district, most of your employment information other than confidential personnel information is available to the public upon request? Did you know that ANY public entity, City Council, School Board, State Legislature, must also provide any citizen, upon legal request, public information as well?...More

The Critical Role of Representation in the Workplace/Practical Approaches
CSEA Job Stewards / Chapter Officers should be prepared to take on the duty of representing workers at least at the initial step of discipline. Often that involvement will be limited to interviewing the member regarding the issue at hand. In many cases a final outcome will not be determined in the initial meeting. However, in some cases the matter may be fully concluded at that meeting...More

What is a Skelly?
“Skelly” is an interesting word. It should NOT be confused with the dice game usually played in the streets by hustlers or sometimes kids.  But,
rather an integral part of labor relations representation and part of the formal discipline process.  It has been around long enough in Employee-Employer labor relations jargon to become a regular word. Actually about 36 years, since the 1975 court decision of the same name...More

Identifying a Hostile Environment
A hostile work environment exists when an employee experiences workplace harassment and fears of going to work because of the offensive, intimidating, or oppressive actions generated by the harasser...More

Back to (CSEA) School
As we prepare to return to work for another year, some CSEA members will be welcoming new classified co-workers who are beginning their classified careers. Often these new workers are unfamiliar with the protections available to them under the California Education Code (“Ed Code”)...More

Are You Stressed at Work?
After several years of layoffs and now furlough days and possibly even pay cuts, classified employees are stretched to the breaking point. Classified employees care about the children that we educate and as a result of their dedication, often come to work early, leave late, or skip lunches and breaks just to get the job done.  Has your increased workload ever caused you stress? Have you ever felt overwhelmed at work? Your job does not have to be so stressful! Keep reading for a few strategies on how you can deal with job stress. First, though, a few words on how job stress can impact your health and your wallet...More

It is the responsibility of school districts to ensure that every educational dollar is spent wisely
Whether we are experiencing tough financial times or not, it is the responsibility of school districts to ensure that every educational dollar is spent wisely and appropriately.  This includes employee benefits. Because this is a subject that districts are not always knowledgeable in, they often hire an employee benefits consultant to not only manage the benefits program but also to negotiate with the various insurance carriers in order to obtain the most favorable rates and coverage available...More

Communication
Much has been written about communication over the years. Key components of an effective communication process involve several areas, including listening and preparation...More

When Can Volunteers Help Perform the Duties of Classified Employees Who Have Been Laid Off?
The following is an upcoming article from School Services to their clients on the use of volunteers.  Given the pressure from all the budget cuts, this may become more prevalent locally. Schools Services provide a general rule that:“[districts] can continue to have parent volunteers helping at your schools so long as they are supplemental and not performing the duties of classified employees whose positions have been eliminated. As a general rule, volunteers can continue to do the kinds of things they were doing before the layoff.”...More
