Revised policy on students and annuitants

Posted: 7/19/2013 Tags: bargaining election pension Tags Views: 2308

CalHR has released an official memo re: the hiring of student assistants and retired annuitants.

The new memo supersedes PML 2012-034 regarding the use of Student Assistants and Retired Annuitants.

Per CalHR:

As you are aware, the State entered into an agreement for the July 2, 2013 - July 1, 2016 contract with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 1000 representing State employees in Bargaining Units 1, 3, 4, 11, 14, 15, 17, 20, and 21 to include provisions for hiring of Student Assistants and Retired Annuitants. The State and SEIU agree that hiring students and retired annuitants may be necessary 1) to give students the opportunity to gain experience in their field of study and give the State the ability to attract high quality candidates for possible hire, and 2) retired annuitants may be necessary to perform mission critical work. Mission critical is defined by SEIU as a disruption in normal business, which may result in the failure of a business operation. Student Assistants and Retired Annuitants shall not displace SEIU represented employees.

If you have questions about the new student/annuitant hiring practices, please contact ACSS Senior Labor Relations Representative Nellie D. Lynn at nlynn@calcsea.org

After your ACSS met and confered yesterday with CalHR over the rank and file bargaining agreements, CalHR has officially extended the first provision of many to state supervisors, managers, and confidential employees.

PML2013-022 provides for the extension of lodging/per diem increases to excluded employees in addition to rank and file.

The full details of the modest increases to lodging and meal rates are in the PML.

Your ACSS is working with CalHR on extending dozens of other provisions from the rank and file agreements, including the 4.5% raise that will apply to SEIU Local 1000 members.

LAO recommends supervisor raises

Posted: 6/28/2013 Tags: bargaining legislature salary Tags Views: 1973

The Legislative Analyst's Office (LAO) has released their financial analysis of the tentative bargaining agreement with SEIU Local 1000, and has recommended a "me too" raise for supervisors, managers, and confidential employees to avoid further salary compaction.

The LAO analysis estimates the total cost of the raises outlined in the Local 1000 bargaining agreement at roughly $308 million over three years.

A separate analysis aimed at mitigating salary compaction estimates the cost of extending rank and file raises to supervisors, managers, and confidential employees at an additional $118 million over three years.

CalHR still uncertain on "me too" provisions

Posted: 6/19/2013 Tags: bargaining legislature salary Tags Views: 2157

Even though state supervisors, managers, and confidential employees are excluded from the collective bargaining process by law, your ACSS is working with CalHR to determine how they will apply the provisions of the rank and file bargaining agreements to excluded employees.

Prior administrations have extended rank and file bargaining agreements to excluded employees in so called "me too" agreements, but the livelihoods of the State's most skilled and dedicated employees are usually not addressed until after all of the rank and file agreements are finalized.

ACSS is pushing for a change to this unwritten policy - both with our current anti-compaction bill and ongoing talks with CalHR.

CalHR Excluded Employee Labor Relations Officer Stephen Booth said that although it is the current administration's policy to not "disadvantage supervisory employees," he cannot guarantee that the same pay package in the rank and file agreements will be extended to excluded employees.

Your ACSS will continue to work with CalHR and the Legislature to ensure that their responsibility in setting excluded employee compensation is met.

The raises in the agreement are tied to as-yet unspecified revenue targets. If the State meets said targets, a 2% raise will go into effect July 1, 2014, and another 2.5% raise will go into effect July 1, 2015. If the State fails to meet the revenue targets, a 4.5% raise will go into effect July 1, 2015.
