CSU employees insist

Faculty union demands change from university administration

On the heels of a protest on the Chico State campus in February, the California State University Employees Union recently sent a formal letter to Chico State administration outlining specific demands for change.

The union hasn’t heard from university administration since its protest on Feb. 13, despite sending President Paul Zingg a petition signed by numerous staff and faculty members decrying internal issues with bullying, transparency, retaliation and intimidation, cronyism, wages and parking.

Among other demands, the letter calls on Chico State to establish a zero-tolerance anti-bullying policy; create an executive memo declaring university policy to be transparent in all dealings with staff, faculty, students and the public; and have staff provide an annual evaluation of managers and vice presidents.

The letter requests a response from the university by Friday (April 3).
