Why Join CSEA?
You work hard to improve the lives of the students you serve. That's why we work hard to improve the lives of the members we serve. When you join CSEA, you have a vote in our democratic union, a voice backed by our collective strength and value through our exclusive member benefits and discount programs.
When it comes to securing your pay and benefits or defending your rights on the job, we give you a stronger voice than you would ever have alone. Our staff are the best in the business. No other union can boast the depth of knowledge that CSEA labor relations representatives and legal staff have in the areas of classified contracts, unemployment law, the Education Code, the DMV and health and retirement benefits.
CSEA provides its members with the highest quality services, benefits, training and facilities to all of our members throughout California. As a member, you have access to a wide variety of money-saving benefits that include everything from supplemental insurance and low-interest credit cards to amusement park and movie ticket discounts. Members and their families can also apply for dozens of scholarships, grants and educational opportunities.
As a member, you have an active say in your pay and benefits. Only CSEA members are eligible to vote in the ratification process of our collective bargaining agreement with the employer. Members also get to vote for CSEA chapter officers—and if you want, you can even run for office yourself! Despite our size of nearly 240,000 members statewide, we rely on members to step forward and contribute new ideas and new energy.
