"Most excluded employees (excepting S05 and S06 employees) will be receiving a 2% GSI effective 7/1/14.

What happens if I get transferred against my will?

Posted: 4/17/2014 Tags: benefits membership salary Tags Views: 2369

I just found out I've been transferred to another office. This happened after my new boss and I had a disagreement over my work performance. She says the transfer has nothing to do with the disagreement, but I've never had any other issues and suspect she just might be trying to get rid of me. This transfer would be difficult on me and my family. Do I have any options?

Thanks to your hard work - and the dillgence of ACSS leaders who have met and discussed the issue with Gov. Brown and his administration for the past few years - there is an historical line item in the governor's revised budget that attempts to resolve salary compaction for the first time.

ACSS' model of improving your career works because we give you the tools to get in front of your elected officials and hold them accountable.

ACSS talks compaction with Governor Brown

Posted: 3/20/2014 Tags: budget governor salary Tags Views: 1922

ACSS Vice President of Governmental Affairs Frank Ruffino sat down with Governor Jerry Brown and First Lady Anne Brown to discuss salary compaction and the governor's future plans for California.

For the first time, the governor's budget includes earmarked funds - $98.6 million - to begin rectifying the long standing issue of salary compaction.

Ruffino called the historic funds "a positive first step" and called on Gov. Brown to continue his dedication to end the harmful practice of paying supervisors and managers less than their staff.

"I'm encouraged that you've started changing the culture in the Capitol toward supervisors and managers," said Ruffino.

"There's no rush, Governor," joked Ruffino, "we've only been dealing with this issue for about 14 years."
