We respect each other and honor our differences.


We celebrate our diversity and use it to strengthen us.

Open Communications

We listen and provide for open communication across all parts of our union and in all directions.

Fiscal Responsibility

We conduct our business in a fiscally sound manner.

As a labor union, we are committed to union democracy and we follow these values with integrity.                 

Commitment to Kids benefit

The strength of our union rests with the recruitment and education of new activists, often in the role of Steward. This two-part workshop provides the skills that are needed to carry out the responsibilities of the Steward, including: communicating, organizing and leading employees in the workplace. This workshop is designed for Local/Unit Officers, Stewards, Activists and Grievance Representatives who are interested in building and strengthening the union. Participants must complete this workshop and be appointed by their Local/Unit President to be certified Stewards in CSEA. 

​The Steward workshop is on Tuesday, November 19th, 2019 and Wednesday, November 20th, 2019. Registration is 5:30 PM - 6:00 PM. The program is from 6:00 PM until 9:00 PM
