Welcome New Member!

This page is for all new classified staff members who want to know more about Chapter #470 of the California School Employees Association, aka “your union.” CSEA 470 represents* you, and we hope you will join us and become an active member.

You are not a “dues paying” or “active” member until you join CSEA. While Chapter 470 is the exclusive representative for your job classification, you need to join the association (and pay dues) to receive most benefits.
