A&R President John DiSette and 1st Vice President Mike Myles
While the full details are not yet available, it has been announced that a settlement agreement has been reached between SEBAC and the State relating to the Rowland layoffs of 2002/03.
The A&R Union will hold meetings to discuss the settlement and the recovery process as soon as possible.
The Appropriations Committee has released its proposed budget for 2015/16 (FY16) and 2016/17 (FY17). The proposal appears to indicate that there are no 'across the board' layoffs for State employees, no early retirement plans, and no furloughs.
Most agency budgets remove or limit inflation and all vacant positions will be eliminated. The licensing of accountants will remain at the Board of Accountancy in the Secretary of State's Office and not move to the Dept. of Consumer Protection as the governor proposed.
