Veterans Day – 2015


“Those who serve our country in uniform risk their lives to defend and protect the freedoms we all value. But far too often, our nation’s veterans don’t receive the support they’ve earned or the services they need when returning home. California’s labor unions are taking the lead to change that.”

“Veterans and Labor – Partners in Service” is a new project sponsored by California unions that spearheads helping veterans on three fronts: providing volunteer service, opening doors to good jobs and a special Veterans Day event on Nov. 11, 2015 at the Orange County Fair & Event Center.”

-VETERANS+LABOR Partners in Service

Workers across California invite you to join us for a FREE Veterans Day Community Celebration to say…

2015 National School Bus Safety Week

October 19–23


waitingforbusSchools around the country will recognize the 2015 School Bus Safety Week, celebrating the theme: “Be Smart – Be Seen, I Wait in a Safe Place”

 Studies have proven that the most dangerous part of the school bus ride for children is when they get on and off the bus. Remember to pay close attention to school buses when you see them driving on the street and teach children how to be safe when boarding and exiting the bus.

CSEA is a leader in advocating for student safety in California, including sponsoring the 1968 law that requires all buses to carry the “Stop when Red Lights Flash” sign.

CSEA is proud to represent more than 8,500 school bus drivers and other transportation workers. These dedicated employees ensure that school buses remain the safest form of transportation in America. According to the National Safety Council, school buses are 172 times safer than the family car.

School Transportation Professionals
mech_csea_293From winding country roads to busy city streets, school bus drivers carry the most precious cargo: our children. School bus drivers, mechanics and other school transportation personnel are the safest and most qualified in the state.

They also care about the kids and the community. Bus drivers know that parents want the peace of mind that comes from trusting the person behind the wheel of the big yellow bus.

School bus drivers volunteer for more training than any other drivers in the state, and they are all required to pass an extensive background check before they receive a license to drive a school bus.

Getting kids to and from school safely and on schedule makes bus drivers, mechanics and other transportation personnel an integral part of our schools and our communities.
