CSU Employees Union

CSUEU Chico Chapter 302

UPDATE: Letters to Governor Brown Needed!

The legislation, authored by Assemblymember Dr. Shirley Weber to reinstate 5% annual merit salary step increases for CSU support staff, has received final legislative approval.

Is writing a letter to Gov. Brown worth a 5% annual salary increase to you? We hope so…

Use the talking points of the sample letter as a guide for your HAND WRITTEN or TYPED letter. DO NOT simply copy the letter and sign it. It will be ignored by the Governor's staff. It is IMPORTANT that you make your letter personal.


Include one or more of the AB 1231 sample letter talking points. "Stay on message!" and DO NOT alter the bulleted talking points. Simply choose the arguments that you want to include.

ADD your personal story. 

DON'T DELAY! Personal letters represent hundreds of constituents in the eyes of the Governor.

Mail your letter today to: 

Governor Jerry Brown, The State Capitol, Sacramento CA  95814

We encourage you to mail your letter to Governor Brown immediately!

If you cannot mail your letter, you may drop off an unsealed letter to Jessica Westbay in KNDL 206 or Jessie Mendoza in BUTE 507
