No Layoffs within CSUEU - Yet

As of today, December 14th, 2009, there have been no announced layoffs within any CSUEU-represented bargaining unit. The three campuses that had invoked layoffs have now rescinded them.

Please remain alert for any management talk of pending layoffs. If you hear of a manager discussing layoffs with their staff, notify your Chief Steward, immediately.

If your campus does formally announce staff layoffs, call HQ, then call your LRR and Chief Steward at once, so CSUEU can begin to invoke all of the contract provisions contained within Article 24.

Also, now would be a good time for every steward to read and review the contents of Article 24. Take the time to read and study Article 24 now, so you will be better able to answer employee questions if layoffs do become real. Article 24 is rather complex, and it takes time to fully understand all of the employee rights and employer responsibilities contained within it.
