Please remind people who aren't speaking to mute their mics
It would be good to read the telecommuting agreement & make sure you understand it
On the topic of pay, have there been further discussions surrounding reimbursements for working from home?
If they cut salaries or request furloughs would it based on the amount of salary you make?
Can you do a quick review of the "omnibus" issues currently in play?
Can there be retroactive parking permit reimbursements for those who didn't know they had to actively stop the parking deduction it by a deadline?
Will a furlough or pay cut affect our retirement calculation?
If there is a 10% pay cut for instance, will our pension be based upon the higher amount before the pay cut?
I missed anything about the omnibus stuff from CSUEU
keeping receipts includes keeping track of A/C costs and how they changed from prior years. Who knows what reimbursements will be offered by the university.
The first document from March. It has been updated a lot the last couple of months. We will need to ask CSUEU headquarters to send out an updated version.
I’m fairly certain my Manager has requested that I be made Permanent at every yearly Evaluation, starting with my 12 month one, and I have not been granted, and been told that I need to wait.
UCSD is testing all faculty, staff and students for COVID-19.
Is there anything we can do to put pressure on the CSU to make temp employees permanent?
any idea when we will be able to return to work, same question for over 65 and underlying condition?
Faculty who need access to campus equipment for their research are being allowed back on campus. The Admin forgot that staff would be needed to support faculty on campus when they set the timeline for faculty return.
In re repopulation at SDSU, how do we address the homeless that come to campus, use restrooms, sleep on furniture, etc.
When we are cleared to repopulate campus, how much warning can we expect before we must report in-person?
Is this CSU wide or SDSU?
Several of us mentioned to the admin that they needed to plan and include staff in their plans. The talks were going on behind closed doors and then announced to various committees just days before they were to go into effect. No notice or discussion with the staff unions, but they did talk with the faculty union.
Discussions are happening both CSU wide and at SDSU
If we are currently able to work from home and fulfill our daily tasks, then why couldn’t we continue to work from home until we personally feel safe? Wouldn’t it be better for less people to be on campus?
What are some of the things we can do to help protect those of us who being asked to return to work?
We must protect our health!
I was told no!
No to reimbursement or no to stop deduction? The deduction is month-to-month I thought
It's by the 10th of every month if I recall corrcetly
I believe they set a deadline of the 10th of each month to avoid paying for the month & Future months. No clarity on what to do to restart it.
Luisa Provencio Smith
I agree with Yiftach. It is a month to month request.
On the subject of parking fees... How is it fair that employees who are able to work from home vs those who must be on campus are required to pay for parking at all!...
"Missed the deadline" only for that one month
You have to let them know by the tenth of the month to stop having it deducted for the following month
Yes, it is month by month with a 10th deadline.
Can we ask for a blanket refund for parking?
Can employees with health conditions be required to return to campus? Asthma.
@jhenson if you have payroll deduction I don't believe so (I'm not an official Parking Services authority but I looked into it from my perspective); you can stop the deduction and restart it if/when you go back to campus. once you stop the deduction it holds until you ask for it to be restarted
Any change to payroll must be submitted by the 10th of the month to go into effect for the next month. That is a Sacramento requirement. Asking for a refund should not be contingent on that.
What @Cyndi Chie said; stopping the deduction is a separate issue from getting reimbursed/refunded for unused time

UCSD is doing testing, but it is not everyone and they began with 5,000 students who currently live on campus. Of course, they have a health component which can help with tests
Who is the unit 7 rep?
Sherry Velthuysen is Unit 7 Rep
what if employees that are asthmatic want to come back?
Will a recording of this meeting be posted on the CSUEU website?
Generally management would not come back if they were over 65 but they have no problem asking for you to come back....
recording will be posted
what if you are not over 65, but your spouse has compromised health
Repopulation Q - What about if you have babies less than a year old, at home?
To consider: If I take care of a person that is considered high risk (a 94 year old family member), I can do all work from home, will I have the option to continue to telework?
If we fall into the category for chronic illness, and they want us to go back to work, can we ask for special accommodations, like an office?
too bad for faculty
Did anyone else get this email?Faculty and staff who are able to complete their work via telework arrangements will be encouraged to do so continuing through Fall 2020, with the exception of faculty approved to teach in-person courses or who are engaged in certain research and creative activities, as well as staff who are performing work that can only be performed onsite.
Is there a form for us to fill out if we have underlying condition and do not feel safe to return?
I agree with jhenson! Faculty also get overload pay for their research so they have investiment
It's my understanding that emergency COVID funding in the form of paid time off was ceased. Is it possible the relief will be reinstated since the state and CSU have determined the community remains at risk?
If you are asked to return to work, please contact the Union and we can then talk to you regarding any concerns
I need to leave good meeting
What if our kids are still going to continue long distance learning, and I have proven to be able to telework from home, can I continue to do that, in order to support my child’s distance learning?
@Tessy - Thanks for all you do!
Luisa Provencio Smith
They are using students...
Yes, at KPBS we have student workers. KPBS has been declared “essential”.
All of us need to continually remind Management that "reporting to us" and "discussions with us culminating in mutual agreements" are NOT the same thing!
Is there any discuss on memebers returning to campus who have children who are not able to return to school?
I heard from my husband who is faculty at UCSD: 60,000 faculty, staff and students are going to be tested for COVID-19.
Effective 7/1 many of the SAG-AFTRA members on campus are being moved from full to part-time and at least one is being terminated.
Some of us live with high risk people, so we would put them at risk if we return.
Wouldn't babies be considered the same as any other high risk family member you need to care for?
Is there any possibility for those staff who have been able to telework fully (especially those staff who don’t have much contact and/or face-to-face with students) to telework permanently, fully or a few days each week? Especially if they’ve been able to do it well for months now?
what if my compromised immune system & biologics I'm On will not allow me to get Covid vax?
will a vax be a requirement to return to campus?
Did everyone that was told to work from home signed a TeleWork agreement? I was given one and signed it. I hope the CSUEU is aware about this TeleWork agreement.
what about someone who is asked to come back but they have a family member who they live with underlying conditions
I recall the TeleWork agreement indicated that SDSU will not be responsible for any cost incurred for the employee working from home.
for the people who have pre existing conditions and have been out since the beginning will we run out of time and be forced to use our own time or not be paid
Our campus president is in the 65+ age group and she had to leave campus on the Monday before the rest of us left that week.
I'm pretty sure that reimbursement avoidance stated in the Telecommuting agreement is part of the "omnibus"
CA numbers are still going up
