Compaction Issue Gains Momentum as ACSS Meets with CalHR, Presents Proposals

Posted: 10/9/2015 Tags: compaction salary Tags Views: 2862

On October 8, 2015, ACSS met with CalHR’s representative to talk about resolving salary compaction globally for all excluded state employees. Our efforts gained momentum to ensure that all supervisors and managers have at least a 10% minimum differential in salary above the employees they supervise.

In this meeting with CalHR, ACSS presented data to highlight specific classifications that don’t have a 10% differential above their subordinates such as in the CDCR Office of Education whose excluded employees make significantly less than those they supervise. The salary compaction information presented by ACSS focuses on those excluded classifications that ACSS represents. We urged CalHR to adopt ACSS’ proposals to address the pay compaction issues facing excluded state employees and recommended appropriation of funds for excluded employee special salary adjustments in the next budget cycle.

CalHR’s representative stated that CalHR will commit to give ACSS’ proposals careful consideration and pointed out that this administration has shown a willingness to establish a minimum salary differential between supervisors and their subordinates.

ACSS also addressed the issue of parity for increases in pay and benefit negotiated with rank and file state employees. MOU parity would include general salary increases and benefits like the Department of Water Resources Operational Availability Incentive Program provided to bargaining units 9, 11, and 12.

As always, ACSS continues to address the issue of salary compaction and will keep you updated with our diligent efforts to resolve compaction for all excluded employees.

Special Salary Adjustment and General Salary Increase Helps Relieve Some Compaction

Posted: 7/7/2015 Tags: compaction policy salary Tags Views: 4747

CalHR releases a 2.5% GSI Across the Board and an Additional SSA for select Supervisors and Managers.


In ACSS’ diligent efforts to fight compaction, CalHR released a notification of a Special Salary Adjustment (SSA) to address compaction for Managerial and Supervisory positions, on top of a 2.5% General Salary Increase (GSI) across the board! This is quite a victory for excluded state employees and the SSA for those select positions should feel the relief soon. Both policies take effect retroactively as of July 1, 2015. In the 4-page memo, CalHR provides specific percentages for salary increases for specific classes. The SSA is a result of the final rendition of the Administration’s 2015-2016 State Budget. ACSS has worked hard in collaboration with CalHR, advocating this salary increase on behalf of excluded employees, especially those affected by compaction. More details are being discussed this week and, as usual, we will continue to monitor this issue and provide you with important updates. ACSS will also continue its efforts to advocate for equitable salary and benefits for excluded employees.

Budget Proposal Aims to End "Six-Month Vacancy" Illegal Position Shuffling

Posted: 5/20/2015 Tags: budget jobs policy politics salary Tags Views: 3060


Jerry Brown's 2015-16 budget proposes a plan to wipe out an existing law that requires departments to eliminate state positions that go empty for six months. Departments have been deceptively manipulating personnel to inflate salary budgets and use money for other expenses. By shuffling around staff and making it appear that these positions are still being used, the positions are not eliminated and the department retains their funding.  A series of investigations and audits are bringing transparency to this issue and are putting a stop to all the unnecessary shuffling.  Read more on this issue in the full SacBee article.

Important Compaction Milestone Near for Supervisors at CDCR

Posted: 4/23/2015 Tags: budget compaction policy salary Tags Views: 5557

ACSS is happy to report a huge milestone achievement in the resolution of compaction for some critical supervisory classifications at CDCR. Over the past several years, ACSS has diligently spent a tremendous amount of time and effort advocating for the end of compaction in classifications where supervisors were drastically underwater. One of the most egregious examples of this was in the Office of Correctional Education where supervisor’s salaries were 13% less than the teachers they supervised. In a March 25, 2015, meeting, CDCR informed ACSS that they submitted a compaction proposal to CalHR requesting a salary increase for Supervisors of Vocational Instruction (2370), Supervisors of Academic Instruction (2305), and Supervisors of Correctional Educational Programs (2303) for a total of 99 impacted excluded employees state-wide. The proposal provides for a special salary adjustment to finally bring those classifications up to a 5% salary differential above the employees they supervise. CDCR stated that the funding for the salary increase has already been included in the current budget proposal. The proposal may still require legislative approval, however ACSS is pleased that our tireless efforts on behalf of our members finally resulted in positive action on this critical matter. ACSS continues to fully support this compaction resolution and work tirelessly to push the issue into effect in alliance with CDCR, CalHR and the Administration.

Jerry Brown vetoes state pay and seniority shift-preference bills

Sacramento Bee | Tuesday, September 30, 2014
The Association of State Supervisors sponsored the measure and lobbied lawmakers for two years, said Rocco Paternoster, the group’s executive director. When the Legislature sent the bill to Brown without a single dissenting vote, the supervisors hoped the governor would be convinced to sign it...
