With an overwhelming 94% voting yes, Skilled Trades Teamsters at CSU have authorized a strike in protest of the University’s bad faith bargaining and unfair labor practices.
With our member-approved strike authorization in hand, our Teamsters Bargaining Team may now call a strike if they feel we must withhold our work in order to show CSU we’re serious! A strike is our last resort, but members have spoken loud and clear: We are fed up with CSU’s unfair practices and mistreatment of workers, and we are ready to do whatever it takes to win fair treatment!
Our Bargaining Team begins mediation with CSU on Oct. 31, and we demand that the University engage the mediation process in good faith. Teamsters Skilled Trades workers will be out in force to protest at the November Trustees meeting. Our Bargaining Team will keep members posted when and if CSU’s unfair conduct makes it necessary to take strike action.
Our power to win a fair contract comes from our unity as workers. Stay updated on the latest news from our Bargaining Team by checking Union emails, our website, and our social media accounts.
