CSUEU Wins Settlement to Improve Equity-Based IRP
In a significant settlement last week with our Union, the CSU finally admits its equity-based In-Range Progression (IRP) system needs an overhaul. It will immediately launch a special taskforce – formed with CSUEU members – to research current campus standards of how exactly IRPs based on equity are evaluated.
“This is an important step forward for our members. It gives everyone the right to know how their IRPs are decided and what standards are being used,” said Rocky Sanchez, Vice President for Representation. “Our Union will be able to bargain better IRP language in the next contract based on the task force’s work which will be reported to both sides. Thanks to our union staff and attorney who brought this settlement to a successful conclusion.”
The settlement reached with the CSU provides for employees who were denied their IRP request based on equity to be able to obtain a more detailed explanation for the denial.
If you submitted your equity-based IRP from Jan. 1, 2017 to Feb. 11, 2020 (the date of the settlement) and were denied, you may seek a more detailed explanation for the denial. The deadline to turn in a request for explanation is March 13, 2020.

It is nothing short of a breakthrough that the CSU now acknowledges the salary structure needs improvements and that the first step is for campuses to be more clear and uniform in evaluating IRP requests.
The goal – as always - is equity for staff. If you are ready to Step It Up, join us: www.csueu.org/join
