We are workers who join together in solidarity to have clout at the negotiating table, in the political arena and in our communities. We are individuals who know that you have to belong to be strong, and we negotiate with our employers from a position of strength that comes from union membership.
Negotiating contracts is our number one priority. Everything our members have earned on our jobs, including fair wages, health insurance, benefits, leave time and our workplace rules, is the result of contract negotiations. To ensure our contracts are enforced, CSEA provides members with numerous resources including labor relations, legal, communications and field services.
CSEA, the Civil Service Employees Association, is proud that we are a grassroots union where members themselves elect their officers and where only members can serve on negotiating teams and vote to ratify contracts.
CSEA also has a respected political action network to represent your interests before elected officials. As Local 1000 of the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees, we belong to the most powerful international union in the United States.
To our members we say:
Get involved. The more involved you are, the more rewarding your membership will be.
