July 16, 2014: $1,200.00 Bonus
Because the ‘Trigger was pulled’, IUOE State Unit 12 members will receive the $1,200.00 bonus in addition to $32.00 increase to footwear (Article 4.3), a $20.00 increase to the uniform allowance (Article 12.8), and Dependent vesting increase to 75% on year 1 (Article 3.1- 3b).
In a meeting with the State Controller’s office and CalHR in early June, IUOE was told the $1,200.00 bonus would be issued between July 1 and July 11, 2014, however there was an error with the original pay directive from CalHR to the Controller’s office. The directive was revised on 7/8/2014 (click here for a copy of letter). We are now being told that all bonus checks should go out by the end of July 2014.

January 10, 2014: CHP CVIS Post and Bid Survey counted today.
The CHP CVIS survey was sent out to all 161 BU12 members (with the CVIS classification code) to determine whether, or not, to change CHP CVIS Post & Bid and lane assignments, or to keep Post & Bid the same. Out of the 161 ballots mailed out, 60 were returned. A BU 12 CVIS Member out of the Cordilla Inspection Facility opened and counted the actual survey’s. ( Pictured counting votes: Joseph A. Lopez...click to enlarge photos)
This process was observed by a CHP Labor Relations Officer, a CalHR Labor Relations Officer, the BU 12 Director, the Local 3 Director and a Local 3 Business Representative. The survey count was tied, 30 votes to keep Post and Bid the same, and 30 votes to change Post and Bid Seniority. As a result, there was not a majority vote to change CHP CVIS Post & Bid and lane assignment. Therefore, Post & Bid and lane assignments will remain the same. CHP CVIS will continue the current practice of using “local work location” seniority for both Post & Bid and lane assignments.
