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 and the observations that don't make the cut.

As part of our research, we looked at all the CCPOA contracts (and the terms imposed on the union in 2007) to see how the language had changed over the last 20 years. We thought that State Worker blog users might like to see the pertinent sections, so we've cobbled them together here from documents posted on the Department of Personnel Administration's website.
