Re: Addendum to Bargaining Unit 5, California Association of Highway Patrolmen Memorandum of Understanding - Salary
 
This is to inform you of a recent agreement reached between the State and Bargaining Unit 5, the California Association of Highway Patrol (CAHP). The attached addendum is effective July 1, 2013.
 
This addendum clarifies the survey methodology pursuant to existing statute in Government Code 19827. Based on that statutory salary survey, the increase is 5.9 percent (5.9%). The agreement reached with CAHP divides this increase between a 1.9 percent (1.9%) redirection to pre-fund Other Post-Employment Benefits (OPEB) and a General Salary Increase of 4 percent (4%) for CAHP members and cadets. Provisional language, approved by the Legislature in Item 9800 of the Budget Act of 2013, allows the Director of Finance to make adjustments to that item pursuant to existing statute. The Administration will use this authority to provide the necessary funding for this agreement.
 
CalHR is providing this addendum for the Committee's information according to Government Code §3517.63. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Nancy Farias, Legislative Deputy at (916) 327-2348.
 
Sincerely,
 
/s/ Julie Chapman, Director
California Department of Human Resources

Addendum

Addendum to Bargaining Unit 5, California Association of Highway Patrolmen Memorandum of Understanding - Salary

 

Where the provisions of this addendum are in conflict with the provisions of the existing collective bargaining agreement or any other addendum to this agreement, this addendum shall be controlling. 

  • GC 19827 Survey Methodology 

The parties agree that for the fiscal year 2013-14, employee contributions toward Other Post Employment Benefits (OPEB) will not be considered in salary survey conducted pursuant to Government Code section 19827. Effective July 1, 2014, and ending June 30, 2018, two percent (2%) of the uniformed CHP member contribution toward OPEB will be considered in the total compensation for a CHP Officer only, as defined in the salary survey conducted pursuant to Government Code Section 19827. Beginning July 1, 2018, the total uniformed CHP member contribution toward OPEB will be considered in the total compensation for a CHP Officer. In addition, effective July 1, 2018, any OPEB contributions made by other agencies identified in the salary survey conducted pursuant to Government Code section 19827 shall also be considered.

 

The parties agree that for the duration of this agreement only, the rate for employee contributions toward retirement, as defined in the Government Code section 19827 salary survey methodology (utilizing an age 24 entry age) for each jurisdiction will be determined using a simple average methodology, meaning each of the rates paid by employees still working as of the date of the survey (based on an entry age of 24) will be considered in the simple average. During the term of this agreement, the parties will explore other methods of accurately measuring pension contribution rates and may, by mutual agreement, adopt changes.

 

The parties agree that the 2% addition to top step for CHP Officers, which was effective January 1, 2012 as indicated in the existing agreement, will no longer be excluded from the salary survey conducted pursuant to Government Code section 19827.  

  • Other Post Employment Benefits 

For the fiscal year 2013-14 only, contributions made by Patrol Members toward the prefunding of OPEB, pursuant to Government Code Section 22944.3, and as identified in Section 42, Subsections a. and b. of the 2010-2013 Bargaining Unit 5 Memorandum of Understanding, shall continue to be redirected as an employee contribution toward retirement, for a total of two percent (2%). This contribution shall be in addition to the nine-and-one-half percent (9.5%) of all salary in excess of $863 per month that will be deducted from Patrol Members' paychecks as an employee contribution toward retirement beginning July 1, 2013 (8% current plus 1.5% new contribution as a result of PEPRA).

 

Effective July 1, 2013, uniformed CHP members shall contribute 1.9% of salary to permanently prefund post employment health care benefits for uniformed CHP members only through the fund established by CalPERS for uniformed CHP members in the California Employers Retiree Benefit Trust (CERBT). This contribution is based on an amount that would have otherwise been used to permanently increase compensation pursuant to the results of the Government Code section 19827 salary survey for July 1, 2013.

 

As established in the existing agreement, effective July 1, 2013, the State shall contribute 2% to permanently prefund post employment health care benefits for uniformed CHP members only through the fund established by CalPERS for uniformed CHP members in the CERBT.

 

Effective July 1, 2015, the State shall contribute an additional 1.9% to permanently prefund post employment health care benefits for uniformed CHP members through the fund established by CalPERS for uniformed CHP members only in the CERBT. This contribution shall be in addition to the contributions already being made (matching the additional employee contributions effective July 1, 2013).

 

The additional OPEB contributions described in this section will be subject to Government Code section 22944.3 (d) and (e), consistent with existing contributions.  

  • PLP 

The Personal Leave Program (PLP) shall end June 30, 2013, and employees who have been participating in PLP shall receive the corresponding salary of 4.62% back into their salaries effective July 1, 2013.  

  • Salaries 

Effective July 1, 2013, uniformed CHP members and cadets shall receive a General Salary Increase of 4 percent (4%). The survey conducted pursuant to Government Code section 19827 shall continue to govern salary determinations on July 1 of each year for duration of this agreement.  

  • Business and Travel 

Rates for Meals and Incidentals:

 

Breakfast up to $8.00

Lunch up to $12.00

Dinner up to $20.00

Incidentals up to $6.00

Total up to $46.00 for every full 24 hours of travel

 

Lodging:

 

Regular State Business Travel: Statewide, in locations not listed otherwise in this agreement, for receipted lodging while on travel states to conduct State business, actual lodging up to $90 plus applicable taxes.

 

When employees are required to do business and obtain lodging in the counties of Los Angeles, Orange, Ventura & Edwards AFB, less the city of Santa Monica, actual lodging up to $120 plus applicable taxes.

 

When employees are required to do business and obtain lodging in the counties Sacramento, Napa and Riverside, actual lodging up to $95 plus applicable taxes.

  • PEPRA Cost Savings

The State and CAHP shall work to determine the savings realized by the State as a result of the Public Employees Pension Reform Act (PEPRA), enacted January 1, 2013.
