The new contract amendments discussed in our story in today's Bee share many details, but they're very different in the incentive payments they offer when employees transfer.
As of this writing on Tuesday, California Attorneys, Administrative Law Judges and Hearing Officers in State Employment (Unit 2), Professional Engineers in California Government (9) and California Association of Professional Scientists (10) hadn't signed any contract amendments.
The California Association of Highway Patrolmen (Unit 5), the California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (7) and the California Department of Forestry Firefighters (8) don't have members who work for Corrections, so they weren't approached to amend their contracts.
Here are the incentive pay differences as spelled out in the various agreements signed with SEIU Local 1000 (Bargaining Units 1, 3, 4, 11, 14, 15, 17, 20 and 21), California Correctional Peace Officers Association (Unit 6), International Union of Operating Engineers (12 and 13), Union of American Physicians & Dentists (16), California Association of Psychiatric Technicians (18) and American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (19).
