Your ACSS received notice of intent of the Department of Social Services (DSS) Community Care Licensing Division to reorganize the Adult and Senior Care Program.

Specifically staff currently assigned responsibilities only to Residential Care Facilities for the Elderly or only to Adult Community Care Facilities will now have a mixed assignment. The reorganization may impact the terms and conditions of employment for affected employees.

To preserve your rights and address the concerns of our members, ACSS requested a meet and confer with DSS to discuss the reorganization plan.

If you have any concerns or questions regarding the implementation of the reorganization, please contact ACSS Senior Labor Relations Representative Nellie Lynn ASAP at nlynn@calcsea.org

Over the holidays you may have received two emails from ACSS that contained very similar--and dated--news items. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.

We're testing out a new system to improve the speed with which we get important news in front of you, and our new service provider had some issues that caused the errors.

We're working to iron out the remaining bugs and hope to soon have a speedy, effective means of getting the information that matters delivered to you on a regular basis.

Stay tuned, and thanks for understanding.

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.
