On June 12, ACSS Executive Director Rocco Paternoster met with Richard Gillihan, Acting Director of CalHR to discuss compaction and other issues facing ACSS members.
Paternoster was appreciative that Gillihan spoke honestly and frankly during the productive meeting regarding the state budget process, employee compensation issues, and especially compaction, showcasing Gillihan's depth of knowledge and expertise on the subject. Compaction and SB216 were discussed at length. In addition, Paternoster was able to provide CalHR with with specific information on multiple state supervisory classifications which make significantly less or incrementally more than the classifications they supervise.
While Acting Director Gillihan could not commit to resolving compaction he did acknowledge that it was an issue in state service and committed to continuing to work with ACSS on labor issues.
