The CSU has continued to show that their workers are not a priority by offering insulting and inadequate wage and raises proposals to workers who keep the CSU and its infrastructure running smoothly.
The 2022 Mercer Study commissioned by the California Legislature and the CSU found that CSU staff are paid up to 12% less than comparable staff at similar institutions. In response, Governor Newsom directed the CSU to address pay inequities in bargaining with workers in 2023.
Workers are tired of the CSU and the State fighting over who is responsible for financing fair pay for workers. The CSU has mismanaged their workforce for decades—refusing to move workers through their wage scales and building up a massive backlog of deferred maintenance as campuses deteriorate statewide—re- sulting in a financial stash of more than $3 billion in their “rainy day” fund. As far as we’re concerned, it’s been pouring for years. The CSU must invest in workers NOW!
Please join us, the CSU faculty and staff, in demanding that the CSU show us dignity on-the-job through fair pay and economic justice, manageable work- loads, and respectful treatment by management and administration!
