Deadline Has Passed to Submit Mandatory Compensation Reports to Controller
In our September 3 edition of The CSAC Bulletin,
we informed counties of the October 1 deadline for Controller
John Chiang’s new, mandatory reporting requirements for local
governments. The Local Government Compensation
Reporting Program is intended to collect salary, compensation and
benefit information for all elected, appointed and employed
personnel and will require cities and counties to include the
information for any staff to which they issue a W-2. Independent
contractors are not included in this reporting requirement, which
is meant as a supplement to the fiscal reports already required
by the Controller.
To date, 45 counties have submitted the mandatory reports to the Controller’s office. If your county has not yet filed this information, please visit the Controller’s online reporting system or contact their office.
Governor and SEIU Local 1000 Reach Tentative Labor Agreement
Governor Schwarzenegger yesterday announced an agreement reached with the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 1000 to reduce state worker pension formulas for new employees and increase current employees’ pension contributions. Among other things, the agreement:
- For new miscellaneous employees, reduces their pension formula to two percent at age 60 (current formula is two percent at age 55).
- For new safety employees, reduces their pension formula to two percent at age 55 (current formula is 2.5 percent at age 55).
- Eliminates two paid holidays (Columbus Day and Lincoln’s Birthday).
This agreement covers a three-year contract period (July 2010 through July 2013) and is in addition to agreements with six other state worker unions covering roughly 37,000 employees.
