The Pregnant Workers Fairness Act was recently enacted by the Federal Government. The PFWA sets some terms and conditions the employer must follow, including making reasonable accommodations for a worker’s limitations due to pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions. This act would apply to members in Local and State Government as well as in the Private Sector. Please see the attached memo that contains important information about this act.

Effective July 1st 2023 the Local will be removing all court system related emails from the current receiver list we send notices to. We will also be vetting the list for those who have opted out of or are not active CSEA members. If you would like to continue on as a receiver or if you would like to start assisting the Local as a new receiver, you must supply the Local with a personal email address and be a member in good standing with CSEA. Please email with a personal email address that can be utilized as soon as possible. When sending over your personal email please give your name, work location and Job title. Additionally, I want to remind everyone, that as a receiver you have agreed to disseminate these notices amongst your co-workers. This can be done through an email chain or a hardcopy, that can be posted on Union boards in your courthouses. Thank you all for your assistance and being ACTIVE members of YOUR Union, you are essential.
