Dear Members, 

 

The 2019 Annual Statewide Membership Meeting will take place on March 23, 2019, at 12 PM (Noon) at CSU LB Room PH1 - 125. If you have any questions or comments you can reach us at union@uaw4123.org. 

 

All members in good standing are encouraged to attend. 

 

In Solidarity, 

 

UAW Local 4123

********************************************************************************************************

Dear Members,

 

Thank you for your participation in the ratification vote! 98% of you voted in favor of ratification. CSU will ratify the contract November on 13-14 at the Board of Trustees meeting in Long Beach.

 

Please stay posted for information about when the back pay and pay raises negotiated will take effect.

 

If you would like to get involved to help implement the great pay raises and improvements in our contract, please reply to this email.

 

In Solidarity,

UAW Local 4123

 

********************************************************************************************************

 

Dear Members,

 

We are very pleased to announce that UAW 4123 has reached an agreement with the CSU for a new contract for ASEs. We have been working hard to advocate for the best contract possible, and pushing the CSU to improve working conditions and pay for all ISAs, TAs and GAs. While not all of our demands were met we are happy to announce the following 2 year contract:

 

Economic wins:

  • We won 3% across the board wage increases for TAs and GAs EACH YEAR over the next two academic years (i.e., 3% in 2018 and 3% in 2019).

 

  • ISAs will see the floor for the pay range increase by $.50 cents/hour each year for the next two years, while ISAs currently paid more than the minimum range will see a $.25 cents/hour raise each year for the next two years.

 

  • Pay raises will be retroactive to July 1, 2018. We will keep you updated as soon as we know when those will be issued.

 

Our non-economic wins include:

  • Ensuring that pedagogical training for ASEs required as a condition of their employment is paid work time and that all course fees are waived.

 

  • CSU has agreed to meet with the union at least 3-times a year to address issues affecting immigrant (both documented and undocumented) and international students (F-1 and J-1 Visa holders). This will give the union an opportunity to address any changes to the law that may negatively affect our immigrant community.  

 

  • Workload conditions have been changed to ensure that ASEs will be paid for the hours they actually work. The responsibility lies on the supervisor to inform the ASE of the workload and where and how to report hours that you have worked in excess of your allotted hours.

 

In addition to the wins, we would like to reiterate that we did not make concessions on any of the hard-fought wins from the past 15 years. CSU wanted to take away our parking rights, but we fought hard to keep that right, among other rights previously won. We are enthusiastic about the gains that we have made for all Academic Student Employees at the CSU. We will be ratifying the contract in the coming weeks, and will be coming to your campus, where you will have an opportunity to vote to ratify the contract. Additionally we will be sending an online link, where you can cast your ballot as well.

 

Thank you for your help and support. If you have any questions or comments or concerns do not hesitate to contact us at: union@uaw4123.org


 

In Solidarity,

CONTACT: Sandip Roy (President), (559) 250-5269, president@uaw4123.org

Second Contact: Brian Huang (Board Member), (310) 433-0568, brian.huang.uaw@gmail.com

 

LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA - UAW Local 4123: The union representing over 9,000 Teaching Associates, Graduate Assistants and Instructional Student Assistants (tutors) in the California State University System, is bargaining for a new contract that will help end the epidemic of student homelessness and food insecurity for students of CSU.

 

The union is fighting for wage increases that are consummate with the standard of living in California, tuition-waiver, and better protection against workplace harassment for women, people of color and the most vulnerable among us. UAW Local 4123 President mentioned, “It is unacceptable, that CSU, the largest public university in the U.S., would pay their Academic Student Employees an unlivable wage, resulting in rampant homelessness and poverty among students.”

 

The first bargaining session concluded during the week of August 6th with the student union passing a proposal to the CSU which would mandate guaranteed minimum hours for the most precarious class of Academic Student Employees in the CSU system: ISAs. Many of these workers have, until this point, been unable to plan their financial lives even as little as weeks in advance because they are unsure if they can count on guaranteed working hours.

 

The Union also passed a proposal which would end the practice of the CSU only giving semester long appointments to its Academic Student Employees. By only offering employment contracts on a semester basis, already precarious working conditions become even more unstable as student workers are unable to rely on steady work.

 

The CSU routinely maintains their mission is to increase graduation rates and move students through undergraduate education within four years. Yet, many of the issues UAW Local 4123 are fighting with The CSU to fix are examples of the root causes of student financial insecurity and homelessness–arguably the largest contributing factors to students being unsuccessful in their mission to graduate on time.

 

“Frankly, we’re overworked and underpaid.” Remarks Brian Huang, A Graduate Assistant at California State University Long Beach and bargaining team member of Local 4123. “Our members are often working two or three other jobs off-campus in order to make ends meet on top of their own coursework and tutoring/teaching assistantships. They (The CSU) always talk about graduation rates and timely graduation initiatives...we feel we’re doing their job for them by fighting to make these vital on-campus jobs something somebody can live on.”

******************************************************************************************************

Dear Members,

 
The UAW Local 4123 bargaining team has reached a tentative agreement with California State University on a 2-year successor contract. Highlights of the agreement include:

  • Improved annual wage increases for all members of the bargaining unit, retroactive to July 1, 2016

  • Improved workload protections to ensure pay for all hours worked

  • Paid hours and no fees for pedagogy classes

  • Improved gender equity issues relating to all gender bathrooms and lactation stations

  • Improved union access

The ability to give us, Academic Student Employees, tuition-waiver lies with the president of the campus. We will continue fighting on individual campuses for tuition-waivers.

This and more will be explained in the membership meetings on your campus. It is important that you attend membership meetings for further explanation of the contract and for the last step to finalizing the contract – a ratification vote. We will also discuss the methods to winning tuition-waivers on campuses during our membership meeting. Stay tuned for more information by liking our Facebook page facebook.com/uawlocal4123.

If you have any questions, please email us at union@uaw4123.org

Dear Brothers & Sisters,

We are approaching a new bargaining session where we go into negotiations for a new contract. The new contract will determine our pay-scale, terms of employment, etc. In order to be effective, we need to hear from you, about what you want to see improved/added to the new contract. Please take a few minutes to fill out the bargaining survey and lend your voice to the fight for a better contract:

Dear Members,

As you may be aware, CFA, the union for the 23,000 professors, lecturers, librarians, counselors and coaches at CSU, has called a strike on April 13-15 and on April 18-19. For more information, visit: http://uaw4123.us12.list-manage.com/track/click?u=d0e36e0ebd0c1845c15c5a37d&id=fd52954013&e=b6dc216e55

While we support CFA’s effort to negotiate a fair pay for the Faculty which has been dubbed “Fight for Five,” we are not in any way part of the strike. As a TA, GA and/or ISA the strike does not affect you and you are not expected to be part of it.

Some members have asked about their rights under our labor agreement. The Union’s rights are set out in Article 5 of the contract
http://uaw4123.us12.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=d0e36e0ebd0c1845c15c5a37d&id=a44426947d&e=b6dc216e55 )

Every member has the right to decide how to, individually, respond to the strike and the CFA initiative. However, be aware that disciplinary action by CSU may follow if a UAW member does not carry out his/her employment duties as described in the contract.

Please respond to union@uaw4123.org or visit uaw4123.org if you have further questions.

In Solidarity,
UAW Local 4123

Dear Members,

 

Effective July 1, 2015, UAW Local 4123 will receive a pay increase per our collective bargaining agreement. Teaching Associate and Graduate Assistants will see a 2% increase in salary. Instructional Student Assistants will see the new minimum hourly wage rise to $12/hour. If you have any problems with your pay raise going through, please contact us at union@uaw4123.org.

 

To reflect wage and salary increases gained in the contract, dues will be increasing. Per Article 24.7 of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, we are writing to notify you of a modification of the dues amounts. Effective July/August 2015, the dues rates will be as follows:

Teaching Associate $ 15.07 / month

Graduate Assistant $ 11.50 / month

Instructional Student Assistant $ 6.44 / month

 

Membership dues provide crucial financial support for the local union to provide support staff for organizing new members, union education programs, contract enforcement, and bargaining of the contract.

If you have any questions about your dues deductions, please contact us at union@uaw4123.org

 

In Solidarity,

Dear Members,

This week, Governor Brown released his May Revise of the budget. Included in this was an additional $38 million dollars for CSU funding. The CSU and our coalition partners at Reclaim Higher Education have both been advocating for an additional $100 million dollars. The difference of $62 million dollars is a significant gap that means less money for CSU to help make the university an affordable and accessible place. This money can be used for tution waivers, higher wages, and better benefits for all our members.

As members of a public university, our Union believes that higher education should be affordable and accessible to all students in California. The Master Plan for Higher Education, created in the 1960’s, provided a framework for affordable education for students at CSU, UC, and community colleges. Unfortunately, the Master Plan has been dismantled over the last 5 decades. As a result, students now face massive student debt when attending CSU.

UAW Local 4123 has banded together with the coalition Reclaim Higher Education (made up of CSU, UC, and California Community College unions and student organizations) to fight to restore the Master Plan for Higher Education. In order to do this, the State of California has to increase revenue to generate money to adequately fund CSU, UC and the California Community Colleges. The coalition has discussed several different ideas and we want to get your feedback on the best solution to fund higher education. We have created a quick survey to get your feedback on the various ways that the state can restore funding to help stop student debt and restore the Master Plan for Higher Education.

Dear Members,

All across CSU, UAW 4123 members are working together to stop student debt. As student workers who provide critical instruction, research, tutoring, and grading for over 400,000 students, we demand that we receive fee waivers, improved financial aid, and an end to the “student success fees”.

Please take a moment to add your name to the thousands of TA, GA, and ISAs who are standing in solidarity to fight student debt.

Please share this link with your fellow workers and students. It is important that CSU knows how much student debt impacts our study, research, and time to graduate.

Annual Statewide Membership Meeting

As we continue to fight to stop stuent debt by providing tuition waivers, living wages, and improved financial aid, we need your participation and support. We invite all members to come and attend our annual statewide membership meeting.

We are conducting a Doodle poll to determine where the best location and date to hold the meeting is. Our Northern California option is in Sacramento and our Southern California option is in Long Beach.

Please click on the following links to vote for either Sacramento or Long Beach and the best date. Polling will close October 15, 2014 at midnight.

National Voter Registration Day

Dear Members,

Today is National Voter Registration Day. An active and engaged participation in our democracy is vital to ensuring that we as public employees have our voice heard and are compensated fairly for our hard work. As the late UAW President Walter Reuther once said, “the bread box is directly tied to the ballot box.” In order to continue to get our pay raises, we have to elect officials to Sacramento that make higher education funding a priority in the state budget.

Please make sure that you are registered to vote. This includes having the correct address listed so that you do not encounter any problems when you go to vote November 4. Here is the link to register to vote and update your voter information.

http://registertovote.ca.gov/

 

Here is a list of the important deadline prior to November 4, 2014

October 24, 2014 Voter Registration deadline (postmarked by October 24, 2014)

October 28, 2014 Vote-by-mail request deadline

November 4, 2014 Election Day 7am-8pm (Vote-by-mail ballots must be received by 8pm)

 

Once you are registered to vote, it is important to know the issues that affect us as Academic Student Employees at CSU. Please go tohttp://uawendorsements.org/state/california/ for a list of full endorsements of candidates and issues. This website will be updated as election day approaches.

We also encourage you to sign up for VCAP (Voluntary Community Action Program). This voluntary program is a monthly financial contribution that is in addition to your monthly dues. Without this VCAP money, we would not be able to financially support elected officials and spend money on our own members to lobby those in Sacramento. If you would like to sign up for VCAP, please respond to this email and a member organizer will be in touch.

If you would like to get involved with the upcoming elections, please respond to this email with your name, campus, and a number you can be reached at.

Please stay tuned for future updates about our Union’s political program as we near the November 4 election.

In Solidarity,

UAW Local 4123

***PAY RAISE AND BACK PAY INFORMATION***

Dear Members,

We have put together an instruction sheet that will help you calculate your new pay raise and how much back pay you will get. Some campuses have already begun receiving their back pay checks. New pay raises should be effective on your March 1 paycheck.

You will need your appointment letter to determine how much your pay raise will be and how much back pay you are owed. If you do not have a copy of your appointment letter, please contact your department office for a copy.

  1. 1.       How to determine your new pay rate and back pay (salaried TA & GA)

For TA & GA titles, there are 2 forms of pay increases

  • 1.34% increase for all TA/GA titles retroactive to July 1, 2013

  • 5% increase to the minimum/maximum scale range (for those at or near the salary range minimum) retroactive to July 1, 2013.

To calculate your new rate and back pay, multiply your salary by .0134. This will be your new salary rate retroactive to July 1, 2013. For example, if you monthly salary is $1000/month, 1000x.0134=$13.40 pay raise/month. Your back pay will be the # of months paid x $13.40.

To see if you qualify for the 5% adjustment to the salary scale:

1)      Determine your job code based on your appointment letter.

2)      Figure out your FTE (based on your appointment letter)

3)      Convert to 1.0 FTE (for example, if you are at .2 FTE, multiply x5 to get 1.0 FTE)

4)      Go to salary schedule calculator to see min/max range. http://www.calstate.edu/HRAdm/SalarySchedule/Salary.aspx

5)      If your salary at 1.0 FTE is below the listed range, you will be receiving a pay increase to move you to the new minimum increased by 5%. You will also receive that difference in your back pay

 

  1. 2.       How to determine your new pay rate and back pay (hourly ISA)

For ISA hourly employees (Tutors, Graders, Readers, Supplemental Instructor’s) the new minimum hourly rate (effective retroactive to July 1, 2013) is $11/hour.

  • To calculate your back pay if you are currently paid less than $11/hour, simply take the difference between your current wage ($10/hour minimum) and the new $11/hour increase. For example, if you are currently paid $10/hour, you will receive a $1/hour pay increase. For your back pay, if you worked 120 hours since July 1, 2013, you would be paid 120 x $1=$120 back pay.

 

If you need any assistance in helping to calculate your back pay or have not received your pay increase or back pay, please contact UAW Local 4123 at union@uaw4123.org.

 

IMPORTANT-Pay Raise and Backpay Update

Dear Members,

The Union is appealing to a binding neutral arbitration hearing a grievance we filed last fall to secure the raises and backpay that we won in our new contract. Despite the Union ratifying the contract in October 2013 and CSU in November 2013, CSU has yet to implement the pay raises and provide back pay retroactive to July 1, 2013. In addition to the delay in receiving our much needed pay raises and backpay, it is of great concern that that members who are not working this semester/quarter, and particularly those who have graduated, must receive their just compensation and backpay before contact with them is lost.

This week at the Board of Trustees meeting in Long Beach, UAW 4123 had three members speak on the delay and the problems it is creating for our membership. “I’m glad that we got a good contract with pay raises. I’m upset that we haven’t gotten those pay raises,” said Nate Greely, Graduate Assistant and Head Steward at Cal State Los Angeles. UAW Local 4123 Recording Secretary Maura Cotter, a Graduate Assistant at Long Beach described the “nightmare” caused by not paying employees in a timely manner. “I was just speaking to TA’s who didn’t get jobs this semester… This is a waste of our member’s dues dollars and public taxpayer dollars spent trying to track everyone down to make sure they get their money.” President Rich Anderson noted that CSU needs to “quit using an incompetent State Controller’s Office to process payroll with extensive delays.”

Chancellor White and Vice Chancellor of Human Resources Gail Brooks spoke immediately about the situation at the Trustees meeting with Trustee Lou Monville, who chairs the Committee on Collective Bargaining, commenting that the Trustees will see if anything can be done to expedite the process.

We will keep you updated as to the status of the pay raises and backpay being implemented. We need be vigilant in enforcing our new contract to get the much deserved improvements we won. When the paychecks do come out, please pay attention to the amounts to ensure that your pay raises and back pay have been processed correctly. We will send out additional information shortly about how to figure out your pay raise and how much backpay you are owed.

If you have any further questions, please contact us at union@uaw4123.org .

In Solidarity,

UAW 4123

 

    

Dear SFSU Members,

President Wong has announced that the Science Building will be closed for the entire Spring semester to address the presence of lead, asbestos, and mercury. There are lots of questions regarding health concerns and possible exposure, what will happen with your job assignments that were in the building, and what will happen to any research or other property inside the building.

As union members, health and safety is a very important issue and the communication and involvement of our members is important to ensure the safety for all of the students, GTA’s, faculty, and staff that work in the building. We are working closely with support from the UAW International Health & Safety Department to analyze and review all data and communication.

If you have any questions, please email us at union@uaw4123.org or call us at (916) 498-8452.

The University has set up a website at http://buildingclosure.sfsu.edu/ that has information regarding the closure of the Science Building. Dr. Alastair Smith, Director of Student Health Services recommended that “If you have a significant health problem, are considering pregnancy, are pregnant or breast feeding I would recommend that you contact your health care provider.” If you see a medical provider, please indicate that it is a possible exposure in your workplace. You will have to fill out a workers compensation form and will be directed to go to St. Francis hospital to be evaluated.

If you do not have health insurance, we encourage you to go to the student health center. To make an appointment, please go to http://health.sfsu.edu/ .

SFSU has also set up a hotline at (415) 405-4000 that will attempt to answer any questions you have.

In regards to work assignments for GTA’s and Graduate Assistants and Tutors or Graders who may be working in the building, the university is working to get alternative work spaces for instructions, labs, office space, and research labs. Please contact your supervisor if you have any questions about where you will be working. If you have materials or property that needs to be removed from the building, please contact your department so that material can be tagged, cleaned, and delivered to you. Please be aware that the process of removing property and materials will take several weeks to process.

If you have further questions or concerns about exposure while in the Science Buiding, please email us at union@uaw4123.org.

In Solidarity,
UAW Local 4123
