Our Impact

What other people are saying about being a member

Our Impact - Nye

"I turned to ACSS for help. My classification was facing salary compaction. ACSS fought for and resolved the compaction with my department to make my salary fair and equitable again. By going through this process with ACSS, not only did my issue get resolved but I was able to help all of my fellow excluded employees affected by compaction in that classification. Take advangage of the expertise of the ACSS Labor Relations Representatives. It is well worth the affordable membership dues. "

"I joined ACSS because I think it is important that all Supervisors and Managers have representation and we fight for our rights together."
