The California Association of Highway Patrolmen has notified Jerry that they will buy into his 5% pay reduction one-day-per-month furlough plan. The agreement will encourage, but not require, CHP officers to use banked furlough time that they may accrue instead of vacation time to cover annual vacations.
It looks me like the Chippies, who have NOT gotten nailed in previous furlough plans, are being smart here by getting in front of the issue. Luckily for them they can afford to, they haven’t had to eat years of furloughs before now because Arnie and Jerry consider them to be “real” public safety employees, unlike prison workers.
