The WSU and the Washington State Employees Federation (WFSE) have agreed on the application of the 2015-2017 WSU-WFSE collective agreement to the tariff unit (BU) 13. See the Memorandum of Understanding of July 2, 2015. If you use the computer, be sure to add your OPEB deductions, as the calculator is not subject to legislative authorization, as invoices accepting organization and file filing agreements are not subject to legislative authorization, ACSS will continue to defend the aggressive interests of excluded workers. ACSS also informs you of the latest information on your salaries and benefits. Overall, the calculator essentially gives them your salary with each SSA, then removes the 9.23% after adding the SSA, then only adds the health subsidy, but doesn`t add the OPEB block in your paycheck. With the provisional agreement of SEIU Local 1000 Side Letter, we have approached CalHR to reiterate these demands and ensure that there is a fair package for excluded workers who are not directly linked to a bargaining unit. If a rank and file unit does not accept and instead authorizes wage reductions, ACSS will ensure that the reductions are fair to excluded workers. This event is for members and their families, so please sign up here to participate! www.seiu1000.org/post/womens-empowerment-committee-3 The 9.23% seems to be deducted from our salaries even after the SSA, not in front of what is written in the letter agreement. The emphasis is on reductions in the work compensation required by the governor and taken into account in the state budget. Parliament has asked political groups to accept a reduction through collective bargaining. Without these agreements, Parliament would authorize a reduction in labour aid. Two groups agreed, including SEIU Local 1000, which represents nine of the state`s 21 bargaining units, and the California Correctional Peace Officers Association (CCPOA), which represents the bargaining unit 6. Local 1000 Women`s Empowerment Committee invites them to the 3rd annual LUNAFEST, a virtual screening and Q-A of seven short films made by, for and about women, on October 16 from 6pm to 8.30pm.
ACSS lawyers and legal team continue to advocate for the interests of excluded workers. Since “budget bill bills” and bills authorizing agreements by high-level organizations will be subject to legislative approval and funding, ACSS will continue its aggressive representation of the interests of excluded individuals. While we await greater clarity on the adoption of the final state budget and the potential impact of collective bargaining, ACSS will continue to work with CalHR on wages and details of possible temporary reductions on workers` excluded earnings.
