This is a source of much confusion
In discussions with employees about layoffs and reassignments it seems clear to me much confusion remains on this issue. Folks hear something be said about layoffs and think that applies to reassignments and vice versa. That is understandable. Layoffs have caused reassignments. That is because positions have been targeted for elimination and that has caused layoffs, which happen by seniority in affected classifications.
If you have been notified of layoff
You want to read Article 24 of the CSUEU – CSU contract. This is the part of the contract that speaks to what is happening to you!
If you are being reassigned
You want to read Article 17 of the contract. This is the part of contract that speaks to what is happening to you!
What is in one Article does not usually apply to a process covered in the other article.
If you are confused
Your job is too important to depend on hearsay from people who may not know what they are talking about. Schedule an appointment with a trained union steward. Here is the union contact information. Do not delay, delay can cost you your rights!
