CSU Reaches Tentative Agreement with Staff Union(April 25, 2002) Negotiators for the California State University (CSU) and the California State Employees Association (CSEA) have reached tentative agreement on a new 3-year contract for employees in bargaining units 2, 5, 7 & 9. CSEA represents some 20,000 non-faculty employees on the 23 CSU campuses.
"I am very pleased that we have reached agreement on a three-year contract that provides many important benefits for our employees and their families," said Jackie McClain, the CSU's vice chancellor for human resources. "We look forward to continuing to work together in Sacramento and elsewhere on our shared priorities throughout this difficult budget year."
Some of the major economic terms of the new agreement, reached on April 18, follow. (A fuller summary can be found here.)
The agreement is a three-year agreement with salary and benefits re-openers in 2003-04 and 2004-05. The new contract language is posted on the CSU web site at Tentative Agreements.
The agreement must be ratified by CSEA members as well as being approved by the CSU Board of Trustees.
