Following last year's May budget revise, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) faced a plan to dismantle the department entirely, which would have resulted in the elimination of dozens of excluded employee positions.

Your ACSS was able to help save the OIG by working with our members in the department to illustrate to legislators the dire consequences that would result from the elimination of the OIG. Though we helped save the department, the OIG then faced budget cuts consistent with those affecting other state agencies.

In October of 2011 the OIG released a layoff plan to address those budget cuts, and your ACSS worked to reach the following agreement to protect excluded employee rights during the layoff process: http://bit.ly/A21m3D
