CAPS’ Response to State’s LBFO Notice

CAPS' Response to State’s LBFO Notice

As reported to the membership on Wednesday, the State provided your CAPS Bargaining Team (CAPS Team) notice of their intention to impose some variation of the Last, Best, and Final Offer (LBFO). 

In the State’s notice, CalHR suggested that the CAPS Team should return to the table to negotiate, without providing any evidence of concessions or changed circumstances on their side. Thus, your CAPS Team submitted a letter to CalHR in response, asking for direct answers on what the State would intend to meet about. 

You can see the notice from CalHR and our response here.

We expect to receive what the State intends to impose today. Your CAPS Team, legal, and staff will review and prepare a summary. We will continue to do the necessary work to keep you updated. Keep up the good work! Stay tuned for more information!
