CSLEA and CalHR Continue to Work Toward a New Agreement CSLEA seeks promising deal for entire bargaining unit

SACRAMENTO- On Friday, June 21, 2019,  at the request of CalHR Director Eraina Ortega, California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona and Chief Counsel Kasey Clark met with Ortega and the State’s chief negotiations spokesperson to discuss the status of Unit 7 bargaining. At the meeting, the two sides addressed one of the few remaining sticking points in reaching a new agreement: How to equitably treat the small percentage of classifications that likely will only be receiving General Salary Increases (GSIs) and not a Special Salary Adjustment (SSA).

“CSLEA and the State have conceptually agreed to SSAs for a very high percentage of the bargaining unit,” said Barcelona. “However, it is our responsibility to make sure that a new contract is fair to the entire unit, especially to the employees who are not in classifications in which there is an ongoing vacancy problem that would support an SSA.  We will continue to work toward an acceptable GSA that we believe all Unit 7 employees deserve. A contract that we can all be proud of, that is positive for all represented employees, is our goal.”

The parties will continue to meet, both at and off the table, until a new tentative agreement (TA) is reached which will then be reviewed by the full CSLEA Board of Directors.
