        Making a Difference

        Making a difference

        Leading the way in NY from the beginning, members stood to end the 72 hour work week in the early part of the 20th century and later established a groundbreaking Group Health Insurance program that is still used as the model for many benefits today.

        Ahead of our time, members also helped pass the Worksite Security Act, securing public buildings and worksites across NY, making us safer in the post 9/11 world.

        Throughout our existence, CSEA has taken the fight for working men and women to the steps of the Capitol and won. During these economically turbulent and uncertain times, we have fought misplaced budget priorities; heroically defended public service, averted thousands of layoffs and restored fairness and respect and have provided much needed assistance and opportunity to our members .

         

         

          Proven Leadership

          Only CSEA has earned the reputation as New York’s Leading Union. We’ve been at the forefront in the fight for workers’ rights for nearly 100 years, and we’re getting better and stronger every year.

          No other union has the resources, the know-how and the clout CSEA does. Our affilitation with AFSCME and the AFL-CIO makes us even stronger.

          Besides winning better wages and working conditions, CSEA offers members a wide range of benefits and services unmatched by any other union. As a CSEA member you’re entitled to the most comprehensive package of benefits and programs that make life better on and off the job.

                  Building Worker Power

                  The time is now.

                  The middle class is suffering; wages are being cut, benefits denied and jobs privatized. There is a steady drumbeat of old, telling us that management dictates the rules of our work and we have no say in our conditions.Union members know this is not true.

                  We know, we hold the power to turn it around through union organizing. We hold bargaining power that makes lasting changes in our lives and strengthens our communities.

                  We know the right to a union is OUR choice. Building our union and strength, builds power for us, the worker.

                    YOUR RIGHTS

                    It is your legally protected right to join CSEA, no matter how your employer feels about it.

                    The National Labor Relations Act, Section 7:

                    “…employees shall have the right to self-organization, to form, join, or assist labor organizations, to bargain collectively through representatives of their own choosing, and to engage in other concerted activities for the purpose of collective bargaining or other mutual aid or protection…”

                    Your employer legally, can’t interfere, intimidate or coerce. It is against the law.

                    The National Labor Relations Act, Section 8(a):

                    “It shall be an unfair labor practice for an employer ‘to interfere with, restrain, or coerce employees in the exercise of the rights guaranteed in Section 7.’”
