Salary Reopener Negotiations Begin
In his state budget May Revise presentation this morning, Gov. Jerry Brown called for a variety of solutions to help erase a budget deficit that has grown to $15.7 billion. His administration needs to bridge that gap in the state’s $91.4 billion 2012-13 general fund spending plan. Cuts include an increase in this fall’s trigger cut to the CSU budget from $200 to $250 million.

Wisconsin Public Workers Protest Governor's Legislation
Republican Governor Scott Walker's proposed legislation seeks to take away and limit collective bargaining rights for Wisconsin state employees. In addition, the legislation would increase employee contributions to health care and retirement. See these articles for more information on this important issue:

Attached is a page that has links to the HR website with their policies, procedures, and instructions; a Timeline showing how the process works; and Article 10 from the CSUEU/CSU Contract, that governs the performance evaluation process.
Please note that the self-appraisal is optional; you do not have to complete it. It even says right on the form, "This is an optional form used at the discretion of an employee..." If your supervisor insists on your completing a self-appraisal, please contact a CSUEU Steward immediately.
If the timelines listed in Article 10 are not being followed, i.e. your supervisor suddenly hands you your evaluation and says, "I want that signed by the end of the day because I'm leaving on vacation for two months," please contact a CSUEU Steward immediately.
