Name : Annabelle Siongco Campus : CSU Long Beach Job Title : Accounting Technician Years at CSU : 14 I have a degree in Accounting from the Philippines and have worked in the Accounting field for nearly four decades. I have been a union advocate for almost twenty years, including during my employment prior to coming to the CSU. I continued and expanded my union activism after being hired at CSULB as an Accounting Tech in 2006. I joined my chapter's leadership team as Chapter 315 Treasurer in 2012 under the mentorship of Janine Licausi. When I was elected to that position, we did not have a system for transparency and there was no mechanism for the reconciliation of accounts. Duplicate payments were made and advances and accounts had previously gone unreconciled on a routine basis. I implemented an internal accounting system, ensured that our account was reconciled on a monthly basis, and regularly reported our finances to our chapter in an effort to promote chapter engagement and transparency. In 2018, I transitioned into the role of Chapter 315 Unit 7 Representative and also became a member of the CSUEU Statewide Bargaining Unit 7 Council. I was appointed to serve as Unit 7 Vice Chair in 2019. I am an experienced, committed, and a successful advocate for all represented employees. I am passionate about the work we do in protecting and promoting the wages, rights, and working conditions of the employees we fight for, and I look forward to bargaining a strong contract!
