APC Bargaining Update July 2024

The APC Bargaining Team met with the CSU on July 9, where the University deferred presenting an economic proposal due to incomplete budget information. Despite this setback, discussions on mutual interests such as redefining lead worker roles, personnel file content, and parental leave continued, with both parties agreeing to resume negotiations in August.

APC Bargaining Updates 2024

APC Kicks Off Negotiations for a New Contract with the CSU. The CSU Bargaining Team made several proposals during the two-day sessions, but they did not address salary experience recognition or job security. Some of their proposals included incorporating updates to state law regarding unpaid family leave and making minor changes to grievance and layoff procedures. Notably, the CSU proposed removing the union’s right to bypass time-consuming mediation and impasse procedures to initiate an immediate strike, a proposal that the APC Bargaining Team found unacceptable.

APC and Coalition of CSU Unions Rally at the Board of Trustees Meeting

On September 12, 2023, APC was present at Chancellor’s Office – Board of Trustees in Long Beach fighting for APC. We were just one of many CSU Unions represented to make our voices heard. It was exciting to see APC Officers, Stewards and members standing side by side with our fellow CSU Unions, including, CSUEU, Teamsters, CFA, and UAW, to demand that the CSU bargain in good faith by bringing a salary step program that works. The CSU Unions also came together to show the Board of Trustees that we do not support increasing student tuition. It is time for the CSU to invest in their employees!
