CSEA: What We Do

The California School Employees Association is the largest classified school employees union in the United States. CSEA represents more than 200,000 public employees in California.

CSEA was formed in 1927 by a determined group of Oakland custodians who saw the need to gain protections for themselves and other classified employees. Through this initial determination, CSEA proved to be an organization that would stand the test of time.
