CFA MEMBERS CELEBRATE LABOR DAY ACROSS CALIFORNIA: Labor Day is an annual reminder of the struggles that workers in the United States have faced and overcome in the last several decades, as well as a celebration of the power and influence of organized labor. To commemorate this powerful legacy, CFA sisters and brothers took to the streets to show their pride on September 2 by participating in several Labor Day events statewide. In southern California, the CSULA chapter rallied with UTLA members at the SEIU Kaiser worker rally in Hollywood, while the Long Beach and Dominguez Hills chapters marched in the Labor Day parade in Wilmington. Up in Chico, CFA members joined with other CSU union siblings for a community breakfast with the North State Labor Federation.

FACULTY TO REPEAT CALL FOR CALPERS TO CEASE INVESTING IN PRIVATE MIGRANT DETENTION: CFA members are poised to once more call on the pension system to halt its investments in private prison operators CoreCivic and GEO Group at CalPERS’ next board meeting on September 16. This will be the fourth consecutive meeting that we will have attended to lobby board members on this important matter. Just last month, CFA activists convened at the CalPERS headquarters, making our union’s stance on the issue clear with a series of impassioned remarks. Contact your chapter if you would like to join the action.
