Posted: 10/1/2019 Tags: Board Meeting events meeting Tags Views: 449

On September 21, ACSS held its second Board of Directors meeting for 2019 in San Diego. The first order of business was to fill vacancies on the ACSS Board of Directors, and a vacancy in the office of CFO due to the retirement of former CFO Pam Robison. Christina Shupe was confirmed as the new Secretary/Treasurer and as a member of the Board of Directors from Chapter 503. Other members elected to the Board of Directors were Barbara Kranz (Chapter 504), Toni Moon (Chapter 508) and Elena Yuasa (Chapter 513). With former Chapter 513 President Elena Yuasa elected to the Board, Glenn Illustrisimo assumes the Presidency of Chapter 513. Past President Frank Ruffino swore in the new Board Members and Chapter Officers by reciting the Oath of Office.

The Board of Directors reviewed and discussed recommendations from the PAC/Legislative Committee, the President’s Forum, as well as other Association business. Based on ACSS reviews on recommended Legislative candidates, the ACSS Board unanimously voted to endorse the list of candidates. Click here to view the current list of ACSS-Endorsed Legislators.

The Board also discussed the tentative labor contracts for rank-and-file employees and their impact on ACSS members. ACSS plans to meet with CalHR in October to discuss requests for salary and benefit equity with these new agreements. ACSS also continues to advocate for Legislative approval of these agreements, which contain appropriations of money to fund increases in related excluded employee salaries and benefits.

Highlights of the recent wins of the ACSS Representation Program include the new employer paid Family Care Leave which is unique to excluded employees, the new post and bid policy for Supervising Correctional Cooks, and the dozens of changes benefiting ACSS members made to state policies through the meet and confer process.

Guest Speaker Councilmember Chris Ward spoke candidly in defense of public employee pensions and support for supervisory and managerial employees, while answering questions from the Board. Past ACSS President Frank Ruffino attended as a special guest and was celebrated for his many years of dedicated service to ACSS. The meeting closed with a cake cutting ceremony commemorating ACSS Director of Representation, Nellie Lynn, who will be retiring in October 2019 after more than 30 years of dedicated service to CSEA and ACSS. ACSS congratulates the new Board of Directors, Chapter Officers and Statewide Officers that represent ACSS leadership. To view more photos of the events of the Board Meeting, click here.

On July 23, 2016, ACSS held a Board Meeting in Sacramento. The Board moved motions to appoint a select number of Chapter Officers in some ACSS Chapters where there were vacancies. The new officers present at the meeting were sworn into office.

   - Vice President – Joseph Aiu
   - Secretary Treasurer – Dionne Faulk*

Chapter 513

*Sworn in at the Board Meeting.

In other business conducted at the meeting, the Political Action Committee (PAC) reviewed the results of the 2016 California Primary Election, held in June, and also recommended the Board approve additional candidates for endorsement. The Board approved the motion and ACSS now additionally endorses the following Legislative candidates:

  • AD 04 – Cecelia Aguiar-Curry (D)
  • AD 39 – Raul Bocanegra (D)
  • AD 48 – Blanca Rubio (D)

The PAC Committee also presented information on a few propositions that will be appearing on the 2016 November ballot. Of these, ACSS discussed at length Prop 55 (The School Funding and Budget Stability Act of 2016). Prop 55 is a Prop 30 renewal that proposes to extend the tax increases for wealthy taxpayers and allocates those funds to public schools where school boards decide how the revenues are to be spent.

The next ACSS Board meeting is scheduled for September 30 – October 1, 2016.
