ACSS supports Governor Newsom in the fight against the recall and we encourage a vote against it in the upcoming recall election. It is important for ACSS Members to take action this September to ensure that we retain a leader in office that will protect you and your best interests.
Governor Newsom supports ACSS in efforts to resolve compaction for excluded employees. He and his administration have consistently worked with ACSS to identify egregious salary disparities between supervisors over those they supervise and minimize pay inequity. Through quarterly meetings with CalHR, ACSS and the Newsom Administration have worked through these compaction issues on a case-by-case basis and attempted to resolve them for the benefit of members. If an exchange of power occurred where the current Administration staff became replaced, the gains we have made to reverse compaction may be lost or minimized.
In addition, Newsom and his administration have worked closely with ACSS to make vital gains in protecting and preserving pensions. If Newsom is recalled, your hard-earned pension may be threatened. Newsom has listened to ACSS on behalf of members and has worked diligently to ensure that State workers retain and receive their rightful pensions.
As the recall election approaches, expect to see more communications from ACSS regarding this issue. We stand by Governor Newsom and we strongly encourage ACSS members to do the same to ensure your rights, pension, and best interests are protected.
