Posted: 11/19/2013 Tags: insurance salary Tags Views: 2861

According to a memo and press release issued by the State Compensation Insurance Fund (SCIF), two top executives will be leaving the agency.

At a board meeting last week, it was announced that CEO Tom Rowe and CFO Dan Sevilla will "step away from overseeing day-to-day operations immediately."

Rowe served as CEO/president since August 2010 and Sevilla began serving as interim CFO in October 2010.

The board has named current SCIF General Counsel Carol Newman as interim CEO and current SCIF CIO Pete Guastamachio as interim CFO.

These changes come roughly one year after Rowe announced that SCIF was able to eliminate nearly 40% of its workfoce without a layoff.

In a meeting with ACSS Senior Labor Relations Representative Nellie Lynn, CalHR's Excluded Employee Labor Relations Officer Stephen Booth confirmed that his department is closely examining salary compaction - the phenomenon in which excluded employees often earn less than those they supervise.

"We're in the pre-budget process now," said Booth.

"And we're taking a serious look at compaction and some of the other perennial wage issues that have plagued supervisors."

ACSS talks compaction with CalGovOps Secretary

Posted: 10/9/2013 Tags: legislature politics salary Tags Views: 1290

Your ACSS met with newly confirmed Secretary of CalGovOpps Marybel Batjer to discuss the longstanding issue of salary compaction - the phenomenon in which state supervisors and managers often make less than those they supervise - and the State's plans to correct it.

The mission of CalGovOps is to "improve management and accountability of government programs, increase efficiency, and promote better and more coordinated operation decisions."

Secretary Batjer requested additional information from ACSS on compaction, particularly on the most egregiously underpaid supervisory and management classifications.

ACSS has prioritized fixing salary compaction, and has built a broad base of bi-partisan support for the issue. Our anti-compaction bill, SB 216, enjoyed unanimous support from both Democrats and Republicans in the Senate and Assembly. SB 216 is currently being held in the Assembly Appropriations Committee's suspense file and should be reactivated for review in 2014.

In the meantime, ACSS will continue to meet with the Administration to pursue alternate methods of resolving the State's lack of support for its most skilled and dedicated employees.

Pressing CalHR on equal holiday pay

Posted: 9/26/2013 Tags: salary Tags Views: 1378

ACSS has been fighting for holiday pay equity for state supervisors, managers, and confidential employees since the inequity was created in 2010.

In 2010 the rank and file union MOUs established "premium holidays." Because these premium holidays are only in the MOUs and not statute, excluded employees do not receive the additional compensation awarded to the employees they supervise.

Though ACSS has requested that CalHR correct this inequity on multiple occasions since 2010, to date the agency responsible for properly compensating the state's most dedicated and skilled workers has failed to do so. As part of our continuing mission to correct salary compaction and pay inquity, ACSS again requested that CalHR correct this inequity in July 2013. CalHR has yet to implement a fix for this problem.

Have you been impacted by the premium holiday pay gap? Share your story with ACSS Senior Labor Relations Representative Nellie D. Lynn at nlynn@calcsea.org so she can relay it to CalHR as we prepare to meet again on this important issue.

The Senate Rules Committee has officially confirmed Governor Brown's appointee Marybel Batjer (above left) as the head of the newly created Government Operations Agency (CalGovOps).

CalGovOps, created as part of Gov. Brown's government reorganization project, will oversee 8 departments, including CalPERS, DGS, the Department of Technology, and CalHR.

During the confirmation hearing, Senator Ricardo Lara (D-Bell Gardens) asked Secretary Batjer how she intended to keep California competitive and to bring in skilled workers in light of the looming increase in retirements.

Ms. Batjer responded that she would be working closely with CalHR's newly developed Workforce Planning Unit to determine how to make state employment more desirable to "twenty-somethings" by, among other things, investigating alternatives to "sitting in an office for 8 hours a day."

Now that her confirmation is official, ACSS will be meeting with Secretary Batjer to discuss the crucial role that salary compaction plays in the State's difficulty in recruiting and retaining skilled supervisors, managers, and confidential employees.
