Presidents Message

Dear Classified Professional,

Yesterday, April 14, was a landmark day.  I appreciate you taking the time out of your day to come out and vote. I know that not all of you are happy with the outcome. Please trust the process I honestly believe it will work. 

Moving forward:

This now incorporates the point factor system, as well as an updated process for reviewing reclassification requests and determining salary placement for new classifications, and creates a new salary schedule. The District will be presenting the ratified tentative agreement to the Board at the May 19th Board meeting for a July 1 effective date.   Implementation of the salary schedule will be phased in beginning July 1, 2015. The ratified tentative agreement provides a one-time retro payment of 2.75% of the employees earnings for the period July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015. 

Negotiations will start for the successor contract on April 22, 2015
Here is a message sent to me by Dr Hart. She is thanking each of you for trusting the process.

Hi Dana,

Just wanted to thank you for all of your work on the class-comp system.  While not everyone will ever be happy with any system, we at least now have a system in place that takes a good deal of the subjectivity out of the classification/reclassification process.  Please thank your members!  We absolutely value your work and your willingness to work with us on this project.

I would like to end my email with this Famous Quote:

 "We can't be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don't have something better.”

In Solidarity,
Dana A Baker

Brown
Governor signs budget
California's new 2015-16 budget increases education funding over last year's level by $7.6 billion.

CSEA’s 89th Annual Conference will be held at the Paris Hotel in Las Vegas from July 27-31, 2015. Over the course of a week, dedicated classified employees come from all over California to share ideas, debate and vote on resolutions, adopt a budget, elect state officers and present awards for outstanding service and achievement. The conference is where CSEA members set the leadership, legislative and budgetary direction of the union.
Pensions
Proposed ballot measure takes aim at retirement security
Anti-pension politicians have revived their effort to deny retirement security for public servants such as classified employees, teachers, police officers and firemen by filling a statewide ballot initiative that would eliminate secure pensions for all new employees without guaranteeing any other type of retirement benefit in return.
