Furlough Ruling Doesn't Apply to CSU Workers

On October 4th, the California Supreme Court ruled that state employee furloughs were legal, and thus employees were not entitled to back-pay.

While this ruling is indeed disappointing, please keep in mind that no matter what the decision might have been, it would not have applied to CSUEU represented employees.

The reason for this is because CSUEU negotiated with the CSU over the implementation of state-mandated furloughs, and an agreement was ratified by the majority of our membership. Other state agencies had the furloughs imposed upon them, without being given the opportunity to bargain over the effects.

If these fees are all adopted, it means that tuition/fees for CSU students will have risen 72% in the past 5 years.
