Dear Union Brothers and Sisters,
On Monday, August 24th, twenty six of our CSUEU Brothers and Sisters received layoff notices here at CSUMB. We found out when we started receiving phone calls and emails from members who had been noticed. The Union has not been directly involved, participated, and it is not something that we have agreed to.
If anyone receives a notice or hears of members being noticed please report to Union Chapter leadership. We have continuously asked management for advance notice of this and any other actions that may be taken, yet that courtesy was not extended to your Union leadership.
We have told you all through this process that we would notify the whole chapter as soon as we knew something like these layoffs had happened, please take this as your notification.
Layoffs are not effective for 45 days for temporary or probationary employees and 90 days for permanent employees. We will be continuing to work with these represented employees and management to try to resolve this issue as quickly as possible.
Employees that have been notified, we will be reaching out to you to arrange a Zoom meeting within the next 24 hours.
Let us all be supportive of each other through these difficult and unprecedented times and keep our open communications going forward. The Employee Assistance Program (EAP) is available for all employees in these stressful times.
As we learn more, we will keep you informed.
CSUEU Executive Board
