ACSS saves confidential benefits at DRE

When Gov. Brown relseased his official Reorganization Plan, the Department of Real Estate (DRE) told its employees they would not be impacted, and that the plan was to move DRE under the Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) in name only.

However, when implementation began, it quickly became apparent that multiple excluded employees would be impacted.

Your ACSS labor relations team requested a meet and confer with DRE, DCA, and CalHR in order to ensure no excluded employees' rights were being violated, and to prevent further misinformation.

As a result of the meet and confer, ACSS was able to improve communication between the department and employees. Furthermore, ACSS was able to maintain benefits for multiple confidential employees who were poised to lose their confidential status, including:

  • 1 extra hour of annual leave/vacation per month

  • Life Insurance

  • Enhanced Dental coverage

  • Enhanced Non-Industrial Disability Insurance (NDI)
