CSU: Step Up or Strike Out!

CSU workers are essential. We maintain critical student, faculty, and campus infrastructure. But 25 years ago, salary steps were eliminated, our wages fell behind other state workers’ and we stopped moving through our salary ranges.

CSU Skilled Trades workers have kept California’s largest public university system running through thick and thin: a pandemic, wildfires, torrential rain and more. What have we gotten in return?

We’re ready to do whatever it takes restore step raises—including strike! Join one of our upcoming meeting, rally or action and do your part to fight for the pay we deserve!
