Following last year's May budget revise, the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) faced a plan to dismantle the department entirely, which would have resulted in the elimination of dozens of excluded employee positions.

Your ACSS was able to help save the OIG by working with our members in the department to illustrate to legislators the dire consequences that would result from the elimination of the OIG. Though we helped save the department, the OIGthen faced budget cuts consistent with those affecting other state agencies.

In October of 2011 the OIG released a layoff plan to address those budget cuts, and your ACSS worked to reach the following agreement to protect excluded employee rights during the layoff process: http://bit.ly/A21m3D

Gov. Brown's 2012-2013 budget was released this week, and it includes several cuts that will directly impact state employees, first among them the elimination of another 3,000 state employee positions on top of the 15,000 positions cut in the 2011-2012 budget.

At a press conference covering the budget release, Director of Finance Ana Matosantos stated that "many" of the 3,000 positions to be cut will be within the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR), and that the "goal is to redirect employees to facilities that have vacancies and minimize layoffs to the extent possible." According to the budget, CDCR's budget will be cut by $1.1 billion, or 18%. Read more after the jump.
