Space constraints limit our Thursday State Worker column to roughly 400 words, so much of what we learn in the ramp up to writing it never sees print. Column Extras give State Worker blog users more information -- the notes, the quotes and the documents behind the weekly feature.
Our column in today's fiber and cyber Bee looks at the latest developments in the running battle between the state and the California Correctional Peace Officers' Association over a multimillion-dollar union paid leave tab that has been running since 2005.
We mention a Mar. 11 letter from CDCR Secretary Matt Cate to CCPOA (it's cosigned by DPA Director Debbie Endsley, but for sake of space, we didn't mention that in the column).
You can read Cate's letter by clicking this link. We've also requested the CCPOA letter referenced in the Cate missive. We'll post those when we receive them from CDCR.
