Posted: 10/27/2016 Tags: benefits jobs layoff legislation meeting policy salary Tags Views: 3089

CalHR will implement substantial retention incentives for managers and supervisors of the Department of Developmental Services (DDS) who are facing closures of some DDS facilities. A Meet and Confer meeting between ACSS, DSS and CalHR was held on October 24th, 2016. After serious consideration of ACSS’ input on behalf of excluded employees, DDS will provide impacted employees with a stipend of up to $6,000 for the period worked from July 1, 2016 – December 31, 2018 or closure (whichever comes first).

Click on the links below to read more details about each facility closure:

*Please be aware that not all Porterville GTA employees will receive the stipend. Only those positions that are slated for termination with closure will accrue the stipend. ACSS will provide an update when notice is received regarding which GTA positions will not be affected by the closure.

Personnel said "no raise" til ACSS stepped in

Posted: 11/15/2013 Tags: layoff Tags Views: 2570

It took a few months, but thanks to ACSS, I finally got what I deserved:

A 3% raise and backpay.

I was demoted in lieu of layoff a few years ago when CDCR was downsizing and I slowly worked my way back up to the same supervisory position.

Like many excluded employees who have been topped out for years, I was eagerly awaitng my raise when the 3% bump hit in July.

I tore open my paystub in July. No raise.

Prop. 30 campaign rolls out new commercials

Posted: 10/3/2012 Tags: election governor layoff Tags Views: 2641

The campaign for Gov. Brown's proposed revenue increases - Prop. 30 - has released a series of new campaign ads.

The ads, several of which feature State Controller John Chiang, primarily highlight the accountability of the revenue boosts.

ACSS is urging all state supervisors and managers to vote YES on Prop. 30 not only to prevent some $6 billion in cuts, but to avoid further layoffs and reductions in benefits.

Take a look at the embedded video below to see the first of the YES on 30 ads, or find more in this Sac Bee article.

Love it or hate it - Why we need to support Prop. 30

Posted: 9/12/2012 Tags: benefits budget election governor layoff pension Tags Views: 2491

As Gov. Brown signs in to law a historic attack on public employees pensions, many state employees may be questioning whether or not they should support Brown's tax increases, appearing on the General Election ballot at Prop. 30.

Prop. 30 seeks to prevent some $6 billion in "trigger cuts" to public education - and additional layoffs in CDCR, among other cuts - by temporarily raising the state sales tax and increasing income tax on high income earners (over $250,000/year).

It may feel like state workers are between a rock and a hard place: Support a governor that has vowed to continue attacking public employee benefits, or reject the governor's tax increases and incur further layoffs and cuts.

Your ACSS officially supports Prop. 30, as we cannot support the "trigger cuts" that will decimate public education and further harm thousands of loyal state workers.

As public employees have given their fair share to aid California's budget deficit through aggressive cuts to pay and benefits, we believe the time is right for wealthy Californians to do their part as well.

Has Gov. Brown broken the camel's back?

Posted: 8/28/2012 Tags: benefits budget governor layoff pension Tags Views: 2477

After announcing a series of aggressive cuts to state employee pensions, many are wondering if Gov. Brown's continued assault on our modest benefits will really help fix California's economic woes.

Perhaps a more important question is: Are the long-term risks of yet another attack on long-suffering state employees' modest and hard-earned benefits worth the (questionable) short-term gain?
