BREAKING NEWS on SB 216!
ACSS is pleased to report that SB 216 (Compaction - Public employment: salary ranges) was taken up by the Senate and passed with clear bi-partisan support on a 35-0 vote today, the 29th of August, 2014. The Senate approved the amendments to the bill made by the Appropriations Committee a few weeks ago. Last week the Assembly also unanimously voted in favor of the bill. SB 216 now heads to the desk of the Governor, where we eagerly await to hear the fate of this much-anticipated bill to end the issue of salary compaction.
For years, ACSS has been a staunch supporter of Governor Brown and his programs. We now urge the Governor to stand behind the managers, supervisors, and members of ACSS that are so valuable to the State of California, and sign SB 216. Governor Brown has until September 30, 2014 to take action on the bill. ACSS is committed to finally resolving the issue of salary compaction faced by its members. As always, we will update you as these efforts continue.
