Like hundreds of thousands of young workers across the country, Student Assistants at the California State University (CSU) are taking a stand against exploitation. They perform the work of CSU staff without the pay, benefits or protections.
Now Student Workers are forming their union to empower themselves against an institution that’s taking advantage of them. Members of CSU Employees Union (SEIU Local 2579) support the Student Workers coming together to form their union because it is the right thing to do. If they are doing union work, they should have a union.
The CSU and the State of California have the power to consent to a fast election for Student Workers. They should do the right thing and let them vote!
