CSU Reaches Two-Year Extension with CSUEU




The California State University (CSU) has reached an agreement on a two-year extension of the current terms of the collective bargaining agreement with the California State University Employees Union (CSUEU). The agreement does not include salary increases and will extend the contract through June 30, 2022. CSUEU represents 16,000 CSU employees working in areas including information technology, healthcare, clerical, administrative and academic support, campus operations, grounds and custodial.

“I am especially proud of the work that our staff members have done to help the university quickly pivot to virtual operations in a very short period of time. Their hard work and dedication to ensuring student success and maintaining the CSU's operations have been invaluable," said CSU Chancellor Timothy P. White. “In very uncertain times, this agreement will provide a measure of certainty for many of our valued employees."

“This extension agreement provides labor-management stability at a time of great uncertainty. CSUEU and CSU believe a secure contract environment will enable continued partnership in dealing with pandemic-related issues. We have separate perspectives, but we share a common goal of protecting the university, students' access to a better education, and the employees who make it possible. Campus staff are essential to the mission of the California State University, and we will continue bargaining for their important workplace roles," said Neil Jacklin, CSUEU President.
