Governor’s 2019–20 STRS Proposed Budget update — CalSTRS Supplemental Pension Payments
The Governor’s budget proposes additional contributions to CalSTRS on behalf of employers and the state over several fiscal years, which is expected to lower short- and long-term contribution rates through the remainder of the funding plan.
The CalSTRS Funding Plan (AB 1469–Bonta, 2014) – put the CalSTRS Defined Benefit Program on the path to full funding in 32 years through incremental shared contribution increases among the program’s three contributors: CalSTRS members, employers (school districts, county offices of education and community college districts) and the State
Governor Newsom’s 2019–20 Budget – proposes to provide supplemental payments to CalSTRS to address the unfunded actuarial obligation of the system and reduce contribution rates for employers and the state.
CalSTRS’ Funded Status and Unfunded Actuarial Obligation – The funded status is the ratio of CalSTRS’ assets to the value of educators’ promised benefits. An unfunded actuarial obligation (UAO) exists when the system’s obligations exceed its assets. As of June 30, 2018, the funded status of the CalSTRS Defined Benefit Program was 64.0 percent, based on the actuarial value of assets, and the UAO was $107.2 billion.

The Vacaville Teachers Association, SEIU 1021- Vacaville, and our community allies (shout out to the Napa-Solano Central Labor Council for making this for us!) are proud to stand together and demand the best for all of Vacaville’s students.
For too many years, the Vacaville Unified School District hasn’t paid employees comparable salaries with our neighbors (check here to some specifics) and enough is enough because our working conditions are students learning conditions!
We have two asks of you:
First – please send a message to the board asking them to direct their management bargaining team to invest in students by investing in the people who work for the district. Click here: https://actionnetwork.org/letters/seiu-and-vta-standing-stronger-together-for-vacavilles-future
Second – on June 3rd, before school, meet on the sidewalk (not on the school grounds), holding the sign your director/site rep/job steward will deliver to you. Be positive and take lots of pictures. Directions for what to do with the pictures will be on the backs on the signs. Once your duty day begins, as a united staff, walk in together and begin the duty day!
