By Catherine Hutchinson CSUEU President CSUEU, your union, accomplishes union work through our members working together on committees. Have you always wanted to help out or become involved but you weren’t sure where you fit in? Maybe a committee is right for you. Our Union depends on members to recruit fellow employees to join CSUEU to continue building our strength at the chapter and bargaining table. Organizing Committee members help ensure better contracts and help maintain our membership through organizing. CSUEU depends on members to guide and shape our fiduciary health through our finance committee. Maybe you are interested in lobbying and would like to help your union grow its political strength through legislative action on our Legislative Committee? CSUEU depends on our Communications Committee to help get the message out primarily though email, the union website, and social media. Are you interested in writing? Perhaps the Communications Committee is for you? Our Health and Safety Committee analyzes safety concerns at our campuses to keep staff safe and advise bargaining on safety issues and concerns that could be addressed through our contract. Or maybe you would enjoy helping CSUEU govern itself smoothly and efficiently? In that case our Policy File Committee might be just the spot for you. If you would like to review the committees and their charges, please visit our Committees webpage . If serving CSUEU and helping build union strength and solidarity alongside coworkers from our various chapters through one of these committees interests you, please contact me and I will consider appointing you to a committee. As a member-run organization, these committees keep our Union running and serving our members. We hope you will consider joining us today!
