LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


SB 293, as amended, Pan. State employment: supervisors.
Existing law requires that supervisors of state employees represented by State Bargaining Unit 5 Highway Patrol, State Bargaining Unit 6 Corrections, or State Bargaining Unit 8 Firefighters, receive salary and benefits changes at least generally equivalent to the salary and benefits granted to employees they supervise. Existing law requires that the benefit packages be economically equivalent, but does not compel the benefits to be identical. Existing law requires that the specific benefits that these supervisors receive be determined through a meet and confer process.
This bill would extend these requirements to the salary and benefits changes for supervisors of state employees represented by State Bargaining Unit 7 Protective Services and Public Safety. Safety, if they are classified as peace officers by the Department of Human Resources.
