Submitted by CyndiO on Tue, 10/31/2017 - 12:15pm

After many months of hard-fought negotiations, the California State University Employees Union (CSUEU) has reached a Tentative Agreement (TA) that will guarantee salary increases of 9% over the next 20 months and a one-time $650 recognition bonus for employees upon ratification. Specifically, the three-year agreement provides a retroactive salary increase of 3% back to July 1, 2017, a 3% salary increase on July 1, 2018, and a 3% salary increase on July 1, 2019. There are no changes to the cost of retirement benefits and healthcare formulas that would impact the salary increases.

Frequently Asked Questions about the Expired Contract

Submitted by leon0610 on Mon, 10/23/2017 - 11:28am

Q: Why did the Bargaining Team not extend the contract?

A: Extending the contract requires mutual agreement. Not extending the contract is the first step towards preparing for a strike. With an expired contract, the “No Strike/No Lockout” provision is no longer in effect.  However, under California law, we must exhaust the impasse process before going on strike.

Q: What is impasse? Are we at impasse yet?
