CSUEU and CSU Reach New Collective Bargaining Agreement

Fully fund the CSU

CSUEU is continuing its efforts to secure an additional $101 million for CSU's 2016-17 budget. The Assembly has approved this augmentation to Gov. Brown's proposed budget, and now a joint Assembly/Senate conference committee is reviewing each house's budget recommendations. Legislative leaders and the governor have also been in negotiations that have included higher education funding. The legislature must send a budget proposal to the Governor by June 15.

Legislative Committee Votes for State Audit of CSU Management Growth

As the direct result of CSUEU efforts, the California Joint Legislative Audit Committee voted unanimously yesterday to direct the State Auditor to launch a state audit of management growth within the California State University system.

The committee, chaired by Assemblymember Freddie Rodriguez (D-Chino), acted in response to Assemblymember Shirley Weberís (D-San Diego) request for an investigation of disproportionate growth in CSU management positions, exorbitant pay increases of CSU executives, and ineffective state oversight of the CSU budget.

"We're convinced that this state audit is a significant step in the right direction," said Pat Gantt, president of CSUEU, which served as sponsor of Assemblymember Weber's audit request. "Light must be shed on CSU's upside-down organizational structure, with the ever-growing number of managers often far outnumbering support staff. The resulting tilt toward executive salaries is a disservice to CSU's academic mission and its students."

The committee also approved a request from Sen. Ricardo Lara audit UC contracting practices. That report may well address the privatization of our stateís public universities in general.

The CSUEU Legislative Committee, led by Chair Kim Harrington, and Legislative Director David Balla-Hawkins developed the CSU audit idea and successfully moved it forward. Kudos to the team, which includes the following members in addition to CSUEU President Pat Gantt:
  • Charles Constantine, Maritime Academy
  • Catherine Hutchinson, Channel Islands
  • Vicky McLeod, Fullerton
  • Pete Rauch, San Marcos
  • Loretta Seva'aetasi, San Francisco
  • Terry Wilson, Fresno

As state audits typically take up to nine months for completion, the State Auditorís report is expected early next year.
