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.
