Furlough language back in budget bill

Jun 26th, 2012 | By | Category: Budget, Furloughs & Layoffs

A new and improved budget bill that contains language that would allow Jerry to furlough state employees without the OK from their unions is in the hopper.

This language has been inserted into SB 1037 and AB 1497, two of the budget trailer bills.  This language was dropped out of the budget bill, but has now resurfaced.  I guess Jerry wants to make sure he has a stick to beat the unions if they don’t go along with the plan.  Informal unscientific polling now indicates that SEIU membership is dubious about signing up for the deal their leadership tentatively approved.  I have seen no information on any other groups.

    Rumor has it that CCPOA will be sending out small tubes of Vaseline to the membership next month. Well, at least it’s better than those little bandaid packs they gave out about 15 years back. In September, they’re following up by sending out CCPOA socks. They’re yellow with built-in ankle grips.
