- CSU Staff Employee Union CSUEU, Chapter 307
- Contract Ratification Meeting
- Tuesday, October 18, 2005
- Noon, Spartan Memorial
The CSU Employees Union, SEIU Local 2579, is pleased to announce that we have reached a tentative agreement with the CSU on wages and benefits for fiscal year 2005/06. Funding for the Tentative Agreement (TA) is consistent with the overall compensation package of 3.5% that has been used by the Chancellor’s Office for all of the settlements reached with other unions so far. CSUEU was told that the 3.5% package included 1/2% for market salary adjustments. The TA provides for a general salary increase of 2.075% and a service salary increase of 2%. In addition, market salary adjustments of an additional 1% to 5% will be provided to approximately 3,000 employees in specified classifications. This means that approximately 85% of the employees represented by CSUEU will receive a 4.075% (or greater) adjustment to their base pay during fiscal year 2005/06. Those employees with satisfactory performance who are at or above the Service Salary Maximum will receive a bonus of $400, to be paid within 90 days of ratification.
There will be a contract ratification meeting, to discuss the TA, on Tuesday, October 18th at Noon in the Spartan Memorial (also known as “the chapel.”) The meeting is being held to discuss, and have your questions answered, regarding the tentative agreement. Only members may vote on the tentative agreement, but non-members may join the at the meeting and thus be eligible to vote. Please plan to be there.
