Update: State Fund JLMC
On March 29, 2021, our Union met with the State Compensation Insurance Fund (State Fund) management team. The JLMC resumed meeting to discuss the recent member-only work-life balance survey many of you participated in.
The survey results were generally positive, but members did respond with concerns about feeling overwhelmed at times and the challenges of maintaining a healthy work-life balance.
Some of the major details from the JLMC discussion include:
- Our Union team lifted up concerns around the lack of coverage
and backfilling positions once employees, retire, resign, or are
- Vern Steiner expressed some concerns that the future of the
industry is looking more competitive and challenging for State
- Our Union team shared instances of negative messaging coming
from managers to rank-and- file employees.
- State Fund management explained that general negative messaging out to large groups of employees should not be happening, but State Fund leadership does not have a problem with management expressing certain messaging with employees on a one-on-one basis.
