We have a new Region President!

Following the retirement of former Region President Colleen Wheaton, former Executive Vice President Ken Greenleaf has moved up to assume the office of Central Region president.

We wish Colleen all the best in her retirement, and we hope you will join us in welcoming Ken aboard in his new leadership role in our union!

      Building our Power by facing our challenges


      It’s a challenging time for CSEA members: organized wealth is attacking organized workers, trying to take away our freedom to come together and exercise our collective power! They are trying to get rid of unions and hurt working families by making union membership completely voluntary.

      CSEA staff are available to speak to groups of union members about the challenge of voluntary unionism and what it will mean to working families, and how we fight back.

      To schedule a union staff professional to speak at your membership meeting or at a union-sponsored lunch & learn program, please speak to your CSEA Labor Relations Specialist or call our Region Office at (800) 559-7975 and ask to speak to Legislative & Political Coordinator Josh Schick or Communications Specialist Mark Kotzin. Let’s keep our power!
