CSUEU and CSU Reach New Collective Bargaining Agreement


When will I see the salary increase in my paycheck?

The CSU trustees must still ratify the Tentative Agreement, which they'll likely complete during their next meeting, taking place November 12-13. Assuming the contract is ratified, we anticipate the retroactive checks to be issued in early December. The first full paycheck with the salary increase should be in the December warrant, which is received by employees around January 1, 2015. CSU administrators have told us that they are already communicating about the salary increases with campus payroll offices and the State Controller's Office, which processes our paychecks.

The faculty union has finished bargaining. Is faculty's Tentative Agreement different?

We have a side letter agreement stating that, if faculty receives larger equivalent compensation pool from systemwide funds in any given fiscal year (such as a General Salary Increase or Service Salary Increases), CSUEU-represented employees will get the same deal, too. This is called a "Me Too" agreement. Faculty members have agreed to a 3 percent compensation pool for 2014-15, just as CSUEU did. CSUEU decided to split the pool evenly among our represented member. Faculty, on the other hand, went a different route. Every faculty member will receive a 1.6 percent salary increase. The remaining 1.4 percent of their pool will be meted out in various amounts, based on a variety of criteria. While some CFA-represented employees will receive more than a 3 percent salary increase, others will receive less. Most importantly in terms of the "Me Too" clause, the amount paid out in total will not exceed the overall 3 percent compensation pool. For FY2015-16 and FY2016-17, faculty will have re-openers, meaning they will again engage in negotiations. These years will be again covered by the "Me Too" agreement, which ensures that CSUEU-represented employees will receive at least a equivalent compensation pool.

Campaign against Custodial Outsourcing

At Northridge, where for many years roughly half the campus has been cleaned by outsourced custodians, a worker-led "Quality People, Quality Jobs" campaign resulted last week in positive discussions with management about bringing outsourced work back in-house.

"Hiring union-represented employees provides quality jobs for quality people and shows that management values its workers," said Senior Labor Relations Representative Magali Kincaid, who helped guide the campaigns. "Our employees are invested in the campus community and in the mission of the university."

At Northridge, Kincaid worked with a steering committee of custodian volunteers to develop a series of actions, including collecting over 1,000 student, staff, and faculty signatures on a petition calling for an end to custodial outsourcing. Members asked the campus community to wear stickers on November 6, the day CSUEU was to meet with management. They made signs to raise awareness, rallying in front of the administration building and collecting further signatures. In the hallway to the campus president's office, they plastered more than 80 post-it notes containing hand-written messages stressing the value of CSU employees and the need to end outsourcing. Students, faculty, custodians, and other staff members all contributed notes.

Details based on the day's productive talks are set to be finalized in a follow-up meeting scheduled for December 18.

"These actions are a testimony to the power of organizing actions combined with bargaining," said VP for Representation Alisandra Brewer. "When our members stand up and we achieve the melding of the two, great things can be accomplished."

"The university is doing the right thing by using CSUEU-represented employees to perform this work, rather than using a low-wage, no-benefits contractor," said Senior Labor Relations Representative Joseph Jelincic, who helped coordinate the effort at SFSU. "The university's investment in our Unit 5 employees is important for all sides."
