Teamsters file ULP against CSU for failure to bargain!

After our last bargaining session, the CSU is now illegally refusing to bargain with the Teamsters, cancelling previously scheduled bargaining dates, and refusing to provide counter proposals on salary and other outstanding articles.

CSU filed a premature request for impasse to the Public Employment Relations Board late Friday. In response to CSU’s illegal conduct, Teamsters filed a charge against CSU with the state Labor Board.

Teamsters and our sister Unions, together representing over 60,000 CSU workers, are gearing up our fight against CSU’s unfair labor practices and are ready to do whatever it takes – up to and including a strike – to win the fair treatment we deserve.

“Teamster Skilled Trades members, along with 60,000 Union workers throughout CSU, have worked hard and sacrificed to keep the University running through the pandemic and beyond.  It is time for CSU to stop their illegal conduct, and bargain in good faith for the fair contract the we deserve.  We know that CSU can afford to be fair with workers!” said Jason Rabinowitz, Teamsters 2010 Secretary-Treasurer.

On Sept. 25 and 28, our Teamsters stewards throughout the state will participate in strike training to prepare for a potential strike in the coming weeks and/or months. Union Stewards and Representatives will soon schedule strike authorization votes at each campus so be on the lookout for the announcement of those dates.
