 Chairman's Message


Now that’s the impression that I used to see or hear years ago from many of the non-members or service fee payers in my school district.  As a chapter president I found that attitude to be very disheartening.  I found it difficult to understand how selfish and uncaring some of my fellow workers could be.  Then at one of our chapter executive board meetings my vice president said “That’s because they are TAKERS”.  Yes, there are GIVERS and there are TAKERS.  You know what?  Things haven’t changed much today. 

The Friedrichs v CTA case currently before the Supreme Court is a prime example of a selfish and uncaring individual willing to harm others for self greed.  Friedrichs  believes she shouldn’t have to pay a single penny for the duty of fair representation or the salary and benefits  she receives from the work her union does in the process of negotiations.  She is a TAKER. If she prevails before the Court, CSEA and every public sector union in the United States will be dramatically impacted financially. 

In the Retiree Unit and in CSEA’s active side of the organization that’s NOT who we are.  We are the GIVERS.  We care about our fellow members.  We call each other “Brothers and Sisters”.  If we find out that any of our brothers and sisters are in trouble, we want to pitch in a few dollars and offer assistance. We proudly announce that “We Are Family”.   We declare every February to be “Have A Heart” month and we give.  That’s what the union is all about, helping and caring for each other.  In fact that’s how this union was founded.  If you joined in the very beginning, you contributed 10 cents a month to the “Widows and Orphans Fund” because you cared and the districts didn’t provide pensions or death benefits to their workers but CSEA did. 

Today we still join CSEA and the Retiree Unit because we care; because we want to help our brothers and sisters; because we are the Givers

So “Who Cares?”  We Do!!!

Have a Heart
Helping our fellow members in need

Dedicated to student safety
Classified employees perform the widest variety of jobs of any group of school workers. But while job classifications may call for us to drive students to school, feed them, maintain their campuses and help them learn, all classified employees have one job in common: looking out for the well-being of students.
Rob Feckner
Rob Feckner re-elected as CalPERS President
The California Public Employees' Retirement System (CalPERS) Board of Administration unanimously re-elected former CSEA President Rob Feckner to his 12th term as Board President.

New Laws
New laws for 2016
Several laws affecting California’s workers are set to take effect in 2016. Some of these laws will impact classified employees working in public schools and community colleges while others will only affect private-sector workers.
Safety Planning
Planning is key to school safety
Lessons learned from school emergencies highlight the importance of preparing school officials and first responders to implement emergency operations plans. By having plans in place to keep students and staff safe, school employees play a key role in taking preventative and protective measures to stop an emergency from occurring or reduce the impact of an incident.
