SETC Affiliation

Welcome to the Teamsters!

After months of meetings, discussion and voting across the state, the members of SETC overwhelmingly chose to become Teamsters, with over 75% of the 1,049 votes in favor of affiliation.  Turnout in the election was unprecedented, with over 77% of members turning out to vote.

I am enormously pleased to welcome the 1,400 skilled trades members of SETC into the Teamsters Local 2010 family.  Over the past few months, I had the privilege of visiting every one of the 25 campuses represented by SETC and meeting with hundreds of members. It’s been a pleasure to get to know so many of you and see the great potential we have to build a strong Union together. You overwhelmingly recognized that joining forces will magnify our strength, and create a powerhouse Union in California higher education that can make a real difference for our members.  With the vote now behind us, the hard work begins of building our Union and the member power we need to take on the challenges ahead.  Now is the time to come together as one union to do what’s best for all our members.

In the upcoming weeks, we will hit the ground running, with Teamster organizers continuing to visit worksites, meeting with members, and distributing surveys. In the coming months, we will also be moving forward together as Teamsters by:

  • Identifying the key issues for our skilled trades members;
  • Developing a strategic plan to take on the CSU reopener and other priority issues for our members;
  • Making sure everyone is signed up on the Teamster member power form;
  • Building committees at each location;
  • Conducting training for stewards and members;
  • Ensuring regular communication with the members so we are all informed and involved in the Union.

Thanks to everyone who voted in the election and welcome to the Teamsters!

In Unity,

Jason Rabinowitz
