Students, faculty, and staff want to study options to emergency response programs on CSU campuses. Governor Newsom can make that happen by signing Assembly Bill 1997.
CFA-sponsored AB 1997 would require the CSU to convene a stakeholder workgroup to develop alternative options to current emergency response programs on campuses and alternative dispute resolution options to resolve employee conflicts.
“AB 1997 will open the door to a much-needed change for cops on campus. I can’t express how much this oversight committee is needed,” said Angelmarie, a CSU student with SQE. “The UPD is not good for students. They are harmful to us, and every marginalized group in our campus communities. It’s so comforting to finally see a bill like this reach the desk of Governor Newsom, and now more than ever, we need to gather support and pressure him to sign it.”
After the CSU refused CFA members’ proposals to expand paid parental leave to a full semester during contract bargaining last year, CFA sponsored Assembly Bill 2464. The bill would require that the CSU provide 16 weeks of paid parental leave for all CSU workers following the birth, adoption, or fostering of a child. The bill now waits for a signature from the Governor.
