With just 400 to 450 words for our Thursday State Worker column, much of what we learn in the ramp up to writing it never sees print. Column Extras give you some of the notes, the quotes, the documents and the observations that don't make the cut.
Today's column, which you can read by clicking here, notes that Corrections and the Department of Personnel Administration are ready to unleash the lawyers on CCPOA to recover about $4 million in Union Paid Leave money. And CDCR is ready to pull the UPL plug on six people currently on UPL unless the union coughs up some cash.
