(Mary Rubilotta, CSEA Dep. Director of Contract Administration)
It appears that UCS may not reach agreements with its other unions, so CSEA has negotiated a modification to the current lag side letter. UCS will continue to submit timely and responsible budget requests to provide the funding necessary to support personnel costs and implement the terms of our Agreement. In the event a lag becomes necessary but not all the represented and unrepresented non-judicial employees are lagged, each CSEA employee who is lagged will receive annual leave credit equivalent to the amount of the lag, in addition to having the lag repaid when they leave state service. The credit will be posted on the time card for the payperiod when CSEA is notified of UCS's itention to implement the lag. If you have any questions, please contact your Local President.
