Some major accomplishments initiated by the system-wide CSSAC organization in conjunction with the regional campuses are:

  • Establishment of a personal holiday.
  • Extension of group medical and life insurance coverage for employees who retire early.
  • Adoption of the Sick Leave Conversion Plan for official retirees.
  • Establishment of the two-tier premium payment plan for medical insurance.
  • Reduction of the number of years of service needed to accrue four weeks of vacation.

This is only a partial list of CSSAC accomplishments. And remember, CSSAC’s accomplishments are really yours, because without input from co-workers, CSSAC could not function.
