Compensation LMC Report

Here's the report from headquarters on the Compensation Labor Management Committee (LMC), which met for the first time on August 18:

In May, 2009, when CSUEU and CSU agreed to extend the 2007-2009 contract until June, 2011, the two parties agreed to establish a Labor Management Committee (LMC) on Long Term Compensation Strategy. This LMC held its first meeting on August 18, 2009, at the Office of the Chancellor in Long Beach. Representing CSUEU were the following LMC delegates:

  • Pat Gantt, President
  • Russell Kilday-Hicks, Vice President for Representation
  • Lori Williams, BU 2, San Luis Obispo
  • Mike Chavez, BU 5, Stanislaus
  • April Webster, BU 7, San Diego
  • Rocky Waters, BU 9, Humboldt
  • Teven Laxer, CSUEU staff assigned

Representing CSU were:

  • Sharyn Abernatha, Senior Manager, Employee and Labor Relations, Chancellor's Office
  • Pam Chapin, Director, Compensation and Benefits, Chancellor's Office
  • Karen Logue, Assistant Director, Human Resources, San Bernardino
  • Sandra Bufalini, Manager, Employment and Compensation, Pomona
  • Cathy Wilson, Manager, Classification and Three-Year Cycle, Fullerton
  • Lynn Marks, Manager, Classifcation and Compensation, Northridge

Also in attendance were CSUEU alternates Nancy Kobata, Ronnie Grant, Lynn Barba, Rocky Sanchez, and Joseph Dobzynski, as well as CSUEU Senior Labor Relations Representative Lois Kugelmass. Alternate Kenneth Oden was unable to attend.

LMC members identified several issues that they wished to discuss, not yet prioritized and set to be discussed in future meetings:

  • The overall structure of classification and compensation at the CSU
  • CSU's compensation philosophy
  • The movement of CSU employees through open salary ranges
  • Tools used to compensate CSU employees
  • Salary inversion
  • Training for CSU classifiers
  • The impact of PeopleSoft on CSU's support staff
  • The reclassification process

Two co-chairs were selected: CSUEU's April Webster and CSU's Karen Logue.

The LMC scheduled the following dates for future meetings, all tentatively set to take place at the Office of the Chancellor, except the November meeting, which will probably be held at Cal Poly Pomona:

  • September 30–October 1, 2009
  • November 2–3, 2009
  • January 12-13, 2010
  • March 9-10, 2010
  • May 3-4, 2010
