A Day Of Solidarity With Embattled Workers

March 29, 2011

Stand in Solidarity
Monday, April 4, 2011

 

We Are One. We stand as nurses, school employees, firefighters, religious leaders, union members and advocates for the disabled. Across our country, on April 4, we’re standing together for the right of all American workers to seek a middle-class life for our families, to have a voice in the political process and to enjoy the respect that all people deserve. Today, that same demand is electrifying people across America. It’s the demand of all people regardless of race, creed or color: the right to join together for our common dreams.

On April 4, 1968, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated in Memphis, where he had gone to stand with sanitation workers demanding their dream: The right to bargain collectively for a voice at work and a better life.

Join us on April 4, 2011 as we stand in solidarity with working people in Wisconsin, Ohio, Indiana and dozens of other states where Read the rest of this entry »


What You May Have Heard, And An Actual “Notice of Layoff”

March 24, 2011

On 3/21/11 – your Chapter received preliminary notification that the District has slated several classified positions for layoff in the 2011/2012 school year. Your Chapter understood the list of positions was a preliminary list – not a final list. We understand that District managers have begun to communicate these preliminary layoff decisions to unit members. 

While the decision to layoff employees rests with the District, the District must negotiate with CSEA the impact of the layoffs on unit members.  Any unit members whose position will be eliminated by the District through layoff shall be notified by the District a minimum of 45 days prior to when the layoff will occur.

Is our survey the only way to get help?

March 17, 2011

You have many ways to get help. Another way you can get help by using your own resources is by listening. Simply show up to a “Know Your Rights” evening seminar. Classified employees from many school districts attend these seminars. Dinners will be arranged for those that RSVP to FOAS Julie Curran at the Orange Field Office.

Please take this opportunity to meet the co-workers that you do not get to see. Please take this opportunity to meet people who want to help you by educating you.

Getting Help By Being Heard

March 8, 2011

Dear Chapter Membership,

One of the ways that you can get help is by using your own resources. CSEA is paid for by you, and you should be heard. This is our survey, and is not a part of the District’s survey. It would be best to complete this on your own time, in your own home.

Your bargaining team is entering our full contract negotiations with the District. This survey is for your voice. Full contract negotiations allow us to cover more details about your work environment.

Chapter Members: Use the link below to complete the survey for upcoming full contract negotiations.
