Purpose Statement

When CSEA members retire from their jobs in schools, the Retiree Unit provides an opportunity to stay involved and continue to advocate for classified employees and working families. The Retiree Unit Executive Board is the elected leadership of CSEA’s Retiree Unit, working closely with local councils and the Association to coordinate political and election-related efforts, assisting the Pre-Retirement Resource Committee in its service to members who are readying for retirement, and mobilizing to support legislation that benefits classified employees, retirement and public education.


Chairman's Message

 

It's that time of the year

Winter 2019

Congratulations Retiree Unit members! What a year it has been for our union. Henry Jones was re-elected to the retiree seat  on the CalPERS Board of Administration. Rob Feckner continues to represent school members on the CalPERS Board. Finally, many CSEA Board members, RUEB and Council Officers were re-elected. We have, once again, shown the strength of CSEA in the labor moverment.

We will miss strong and loved RUEB members who have passed, including colleague Sandy Silva. She was an integral part of CSEA as both a District C Director and Honor Roll Member.

As the year comes to a close, let us reflect on the time gone by and the work we have ahead. 2020 will bring us many new members. Let us continue working together, new and old members alike, to form a truly stronger union. 

Ron Duva

Retiree Unit Chairman
