The California School Employees Association is the largest classified school employee union in the United States, representing nearly 250,000 school support staff throughout California. CSEA was formed in 1927 when a determined group of Oakland custodians came together to secure pension benefits for school employees who could not afford to retire. Today, CSEA continues to thrive as a member-run union, democratically controlled by member volunteers in nearly 800 local chapters throughout California.
